Scarecrow Cuteness

I triple puffy heart LOVE the fall & the fun activities that we can do with it...
I recently added this one to my list of awesomeness!

To get started we did a quick brainstorming activity of Fall characteristics...
{please excuse my lame drawings}
The next step was to write about the Fall. 
We are working on our non-fiction writing unit, so this played into it really well.
They wrote down fall facts.

After the writing came the fun part...
{I did NOT complete this all at the same time- this was done in 2 sessions}
We created the scarecrows.

Take a look at the cutenesss!!!

This display was up just in time for my parent/teacher conferences. They loved reading them while they were waiting...

 This is the girl scarecrow...the hair is made from raffia. I didn't have a lot of it so the girls' hair is kinda sparse...still cute though! I love the eyelashes!

Here is the cutie boy scarecrow....I love these & the kids loved them too!

Do you want to know where to get this for your very own??
It comes from the awesome Amanda at 
Mrs. Richardson's Class

It is well worth the fun you will have making it with your class!!
