What a great scarecrow day. I am tempted to make my own scarecrow now, it could start some wonderful conversations about what is real? or what is alive? and also thinking about empathy. How does the scarecrow feel when its cold, raining etc..what should he wear for different weather. Fantastic learning tool.

These are magnificent, Juliet. What variety and creativity.

What I liked was how this event gave the parents a lovely opportunity to be involved in the celebrations with their child. Incidentally there were no prizes for the best dressed scarecrow or anything like that.

Near where I live there is a scarecrow event in the autumn at Drum Castle. Here you arrive in a field full of crosses and second hand clothes. Children and adults can spent as little or as long as they want creating their own scarecrow.

I'm thinking that when we get our garden going we might just have to have a scarecrow now!

Princess loves the "dingle, dangle scarecrow" song! We can sing it over and over again!

Those are some truly awesome scarecrows :)

What a wonderful celebration and a gorgeous community of scarecrows - wondering what a group of scarecrows would be called now! LOL

The bunting turned out great, I see what you mean about creating individual flags for a collaborative display, as suggested on irresistible ideas. Super work!
