Create a scarecrow with your kids with no messy hay! This happy paper bag scarecrow craft makes the perfect fall decoration. He is easy to do and with some prep work is a great craft for even a toddler to do!
This is supposed to be a Thanksgiving craft, but as we will be studying American Indians and their relationships with early Pilgrims I think this would be a fun activity for the kids. I would imagine you could easily make some Pilgrims and a ship too!
Gratitude: Wrote a grade lesson plan for this called "Thankful Turkeys." Students loved the project, learned about accepting different ideas, explored the true meaning of Thanksgiving, and took it home to remind themselves to be thankful!
