Well I did it, I finally moved the blog over to WordPress and did some changes to the design. Please bear with me for a few weeks while I get this new format all figured out! And let me know what you think of the new design and if you find any glitches I need to fix!
This paperbag scarecrow craft project came about because I have a bunch of paper bags and have been wanting to do a craft with them. I also wanted some more decorations around the house that are more for Thanksgiving. I always decorate for Halloween and for Christmas but in between the house looks so plain. Last year we made these cute Tee Pee’s and these paper turkeys to help decorate (and yes I have put them both out again this year).
I know this craft has been done many times before by others, but the girls and I had never made a paper bag scarecrow before so we really had fun with this. My oldest and I had to help my little one with hers but she was able to do a lot of it herself. Her favorite part was crumbling up the newspaper.
This would be a great craft for a group, because you can just lay everything out on the table (which is what I did) and let them get creative with it. My oldest daughter loves projects like this where I just give her a bunch of supplies and let her design what she wants. It is great for her creativity!
