Paper Bag Scarecrow

These are easy.  I made them up over the weekend to see how hard it might be for preschoolers.  This is definitely not one to do with the preschool kids, but 1st grade up would be fun.  I got the idea out of my Family Fun, Boredom Buster book. 

Take a brown paper bag.  Use crayons to draw on a face.  Stuff the inside with newspaper and then staple shut.  Use raffia (couldn't find mine) for hair and the hat I printed off from Lakeshore.  We tried making these with precut shapes, but the face just didn't look right.  They looked like rabbits :). 

My older kids (nieces, nephews and neighbors) enjoyed it.
