Today we’re kicking off the Fall season with how to draw a scarecrow. This art project is easy enough for younger artists but still fun for the older ones. Remember, if and when we go to fast you can always pause the video to catch up.


All you need is something to draw and color with and paper. We used a Sharpie to draw with, but you can use pencil. We also used Pentel’s oil pastels for coloring, but you can use markers or crayons.

We’ve drawn a scarecrow before, but thought it would be fun to draw and color again. Below you’ll find the steps to the previous version.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out all of our other Halloween art projects!

      Awe thanks, Crystal! We have our little friend to thank, he’s the one who drew it first :)

      So glad you’re using it in your homeschooling co-op…please tell us how it goes. I’d love to know if they found it easy enough to do.
