Scarecrow Headband Craft For Kids [Free Template]

When you think of fall, what comes to mind?

For us, it’s hay rides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and scarecrows!

And crafts too, of course! Which is exactly why we made this scarecrow headband craft.

It’s an easy headband craft for kids that’s perfectly suited for kids of all ages from toddlers, to preschool, kindergarten, and elementary!

We’re giving you a free printable template that comes in 2 versions. Option #1 is great if you want to make a paper craft.

Option #2 is for younger kids who can’t yet make the craft. Print out the black and white version for them and let them color it in instead of making one!

Either way, your kiddos are going to look even more adorable once they create their own unique scarecrow headband!

Check out our quick video tutorial below to see the steps on how to make one.
