Materials Needed:

  • Straw
  • Twine
  • Old plastic or plastic drop cloth
  • Set of clothing for each child.
  • Hats
  • Pantyhose
  • Safety pins


Spread the plastic cloth on the ground. Break up the bale of straw. I do this before the children arrive. It helps keep the straw from becoming part of the yard.
Tie the end of each sleeve, the bottom of the waist band and both legs with twine. This will help to keep the straw in the clothing. Have the children stuff straw into their clothing. When each article is stuffed, I use safety pins to attach the shirt and pants together. We make a ball with the straw and stuff the panty hose top to make the head. You can use markers, paper, or squiggly eyes for the eyes.

I buy extra bales of straw and sit them on my porch until the parents arrive to pick up their children. This has been a hit with my parents they love it. Most keep them from year to year.
