To get started, cut several pieces of raffia approximately 3-4 cm long. This is the scarecrow's Hair. Next glue raffia on each side edge of the plate to the top. The hat is on the top edge of the hair. I decided to use hot glue for this step and has the bonding for my children. The hot glue works best, it stuck fast on raffia.
Next use the scissors to cut a hat of brown colored paper. You can arbitrarily shaped hat your child wants. If your child is old enough to cut out a shape, the hat draw on paper for him and he cut himself out. Then you have your child brush some rubber-cement on the back of the hat and glue it on the scarecrow's hair.

Next cut a red pipe cleaner in half, you have your child form half of them in the mouth, and then have him stick on the scarecrow. Last but not least, you leave your child place some glue on the end of a spring and have him push it under a Angle of the scarecrow hat.
