Crow Stick Puppets

in Art projects


Corn is harvested in the fall and early winter months, and crows love it! Crows enjoy eating the corn, which is why farmers put up scarecrows—to scare crows away!

This craft will help to teach kids about why fall is often symbolized with corn, scarecrows and crows.

Let's Get Started

Gather the following materials: washable black paint, jumbo craft sticks, black feathers, eyes and other decorating materials.



Paint jumbo craft sticks with black paint and allow them to fully dry.


Once the craft sticks are dry, affix eyes and beaks to create faces for your cute crows.


Add any other decorative materials desired to personalize your crows.


Create a classroom display of all of the crows together by either hanging them on a line or by standing them up.
