Kid Craft: Recycled Plastic Garden Scare Cat

Here’s a fun little craft for little crafters just in time for your spring vegetable garden. Make a scare cat out of recycled plastic containers to keep the critters away from your vegetables.
This is the perfect quick craft for your kids. I’ve been eating a lot of frozen diet lunches lately – you know, in preparation for shorts and tank top weather – and the little plastic containers have been stacking. All you need to do to make one of these is clean out your empty plastic container, cut out the face and ears and glue them together. Glue on some flat marbles for the eyes and some wire for the whiskers.
The cat on the left is my wrought iron purchased scare cat that I've had for year. He was the inspiration for theDIY version on the right.
Here's hoping for a good crop of vegetables this year. Happy gardening!
