This last Saturday, I gathered in the garden with the gardening families’ children to make a scarecrow and garden sign. The day was full of energy and creativity! The kids worked together to draw our garden sign for Neighbor Garden and also made another sign depicting our garden map.
The second project we worked on was to create a scarecrow out of an old shirt, jeans, gloves, and a pillowcase (for the head). We stuffed the scarecrow with old newspapers, but at one point we ran out.
In order to finish the project we decided to stuff the scarecrow with sand and pose it in a sitting down position.
By far the part most enjoyed by the children was the picture taking time. Everyone wanted a picture of themselves with our new friend. And, of course, being kids there were plenty of funny photos also taken.
