Making a Scare Crow
My son and I made a scarecrow the other day, and it wasn’t as great a kids activity as I thought. It was hot in the sun, and when I asked T for help stuffing it, he had a hard time manipulating the hay and seemed to want to only put one piece of hay in at a time. It would’ve taken a loooong time like that.
I think my scarecrow making skills need to progress. In fact, our scarecrow’s head has already fallen off, but I was successful enough that I gave my husband a scare that there was a fat man in our garden the day I made it but forgot to tell him.
What we did:
1) Found old clothes in the thrift store pile, and a pair of pantyhose to sacrifice.
3) Cut off a section of pantyhose near the thigh and tied it shut.
4) Stuffed it all
5) Tied it all to a green metal garden stake.
But as I said, the head has already come off and it is looking pretty dumpy. I think I need to revise my scarecrow man and kick it up a notch. Any ideas?
