Scarecrows, Corn and More


Hello and Welcome
It's the week after Halloween and our Fall has been unusually warm this past week with temperatures breaking long standing records.  It made it so nice to be outside with the kids enjoying the sunshine before it all passes and the cold winter sets in.
We are still celebrating the Fall theme with some fun activities.
Here's what we did this week.

We used a paper plate to create our fun scarecrow.  We added the song we learned on the back.

Simple cone shaped crows of course for the scarecrow to frighten away.

We talked about why the farmers has scarecrows in their fields and made this fun corn.
Using an ink pad (you could use a shallow dish of paint) we pressed the large Lego block onto the pad and stamped  onto our corn.

I covered a paper towel roll with brown paper and folded down the top to create the squirrel's ears.
The kids decorated them using some dark brown paper.  
We learned this song:
Brown Squirrel, brown Squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.
Brown Squirrel, brown squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.
Hold a peanut in your paws, wrinkle up your little nose.
Brown squirrel, brown squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.

Scarecrow Puzzle
My kids love puzzles, so I printed this one out, glued it onto some heavy cardboard for stability,
then the kids coloured it and we cut it into a puzzle.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.


  1. As usual Karen you and your little ones have made super projects, all such fun, I love the scarecrow puzzle, brilliant, Kate x

  2. Great that you could get out and about before the colder weather sets in x. The autumnal theme looks like so much fun and what a fun idea to use the lego bricks to stamp with x. Had a little chuckle about the crows being made so that the scarecrow could scare them away x.
