Fun Friday: Story Time + Crafts #26posted by sreneedesigns on October 2nd, 2010
Here’s what we did for Fun Friday on October 1
The book was The Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown
The Song: Scarecrow, Scarecrow
Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle
Scarecrow, scarecrow turn around.
Scarecrow, scarecrow touch the ground.
Stand up tall and blink your eyes.
Raise your hands up to the sky.
Clap your hands, then tap your knees.
Turn around and tap your feet.
Scarecrow, scarecrow touch your toes.
Scarecrow, scarecrow tap your nose.
Swing your arms so very slow,
Now real fast to scare the crows!
Tough your head, jump up and down.
Now sit down without a sound.
The Craft: Scarecrow
What you’ll need:
- Brown paper lunch bag
- Construction paper
- Coffee filter
- Tape or glue
- Old newspaper
How to make it:
Fill the paper bag with crumpled paper. Then fold over the top and tape shut.
Cut thin strips of yellow construction paper for the Scarecrow’s hair. Cut two circles from black or brown construction paper for the eyes and a triangle from orange construction paper for the nose.
Cut a flower out of construction paper (or use a small artificial flower) for the hat.
Glue the hair around the top of your bag. Then glue on the eyes and nose. Use a marker or crayon to draw the mouth. When finished glue on your coffee filter hat and attach the flower.
