There are 12 individual kits in one package and each kit comes with pre-cut cardboard pieces, red paper fasteners, a ribbon awhat you nd some extra pieces. The rivets are used to hold the arms, leg and head to the body piece and make your scarecrow jointed. Each piece also has pre-drilled holes so it’s all ready to assemble. The ribbon can be taped on the back to be used as a hanger or tie it on the front and glue it on for a bow decoration. Each scarecrow ends up being about 15″ tall when assembled.

The first step is to have the kids use markers or crayons and color in each of the scarecrow pieces.
