    A cute book I enjoy using for scarecrows is called The Lonely Scarecrow. It strats out with the scarecrow being lonely because he scares off all the animals, but once winter comes & he's all covered in snow, he becomes a friendly "snowman". Once spring comes, he's no longer lonely.
    We have also done a color, cut & paste together scarecrow placing it on a large construction paper, or if you can, glue it onto craft sticks & stick it into a blop of clay (or something) so it stands up.
    I had my students help stuff a scarecrow (old clothes) with newspapers and put it on a T frame to stand up. I made a T frame from plastic PVC pipe, anchored to a square base of PVC pipe (filled with rice from my rice table for weight). It was quite a hit with the kids. Everyone wanted their picture taken with him for their memory book!
