Looking for a fun fall kids craft? This printable crow and scarecrow craft is sure to be a hit! Have you ever heard the children’s song, 5 Crows All Shiny Black? It’s sung to the tune of 5 Little Green and Speckled Frogs and is a great song for fall. It goes like this:
5 crows all shiny black
Sat on a scarecrow’s back,
Eating some most delicious corn… yum, yum!
Scarecrow winked and shouted “Boo!”
Scared one crow and away he flew
Now there are 4 black shiny crows, caw, caw!
And then you repeat until you get down to zero. This is a great song paired with puppets as kids can act out the song as they sing. But of course, in order to put on a puppet show, they need to have puppets – which is where I come in! I designed 5 Crows and a Scarecrow craft printable puppets that you can print off and put together with your child. It’s a super simple craft that is great for the classroom, a rainy day, or just as some special bonding time! I hope you and your kids enjoy. Now let’s get started!
