Although scarecrows started out as a way for farmers to keep crows and other birds away from their harvest, nowadays they are a fun fall decoration for our gardens. You can admire them at scarecrow festivals all over the world or you can build one yourself for your own backyard. 

If you don’t feel like making a real scarecrow, you can opt for a mini scarecrow made out of paper roll.

Paper roll crafts are so great for preschoolers, kindergartners as well as older kids.  It shows them how not to waste but recycle instead. 

With just paint or colored paper, a paper roll can be turned into practically anything.
