Crow Craft Tutorial
This Crow Preschool Craft is a great addition to the fall season and your Corn, Crows, and Scarecrow theme!
We love to create items out of items that would otherwise be thrown away! It’s a great way to model the importance of reusing items for preschoolers. Something old can always be transformed into something new. This craft can make a great addition to your Corn, Crows, and Scarecrows or Halloween theme! Follow along with our tutorial to make your own adorable crow craft, perfect for the fall season.

*If preferred you can use a paper towel roll in half.
For this activity, you will want to start by covering your cardboard roll with black construction paper. We highly recommend having the pieces pre-cut because the measuring and cutting can be complicated if you do this with a larger group of students. Use a glue stick to adhere the construction paper to your roll, and it will dry quickly, so there is no need to add drying time.
Next, have your preschool glue on googly eyes! It's always fun to include different sizes and types of googly eyes so that your preschooler can choose which ones they'd like to use. A glue stick may not be strong enough to keep the eyes on, so in that case, we recommend grabbing a bottle of glue for two quick dots.
An excellent opportunity to remind preschoolers a little glue goes a long way!
Once the crow's eyes are glued on, you will cut a small triangle for the beak and glue it onto the cardboard tube. Either the teacher or preschooler can cut the triangles out. Often preschoolers love to show complete indolence and might want to do this step on their own.
To complete this craft invite preschoolers to add black feathers to their crow. We've added feathers to the sides and back but you can never go wrong with too many feathers. This simple craft tutorial is a great way to recycle and reuse items that you have at home, or ask families to donate!
The cardboard tube gives this crow a three dimensional look making this activity a perfect time to introduce 2D and 3D shapes! We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and can't wait to see all of your crows.
