Toilet Paper Tube Scarecrow- we'll use scraps to transform a simple recyclable into a cute scarecrow
Puffy Paint Gourds- we'll create our own puffy paint to give texture to paper gourds
Fingerprint Indian Corn- no harvest is complete without some Indian (or Harvest) corn
Corn Cob Painting- I can't wait to see the abstract paintings Eva will create using a corn cob for a paint roller
Cornucopia Collage- Eva is going through a little scissor obsession of late so we'll put her skills to work cutting out pictures of food to place in a paper horn of plenty
Cup Crow- this little guy is too cute to pass up making
Five Crows All Shiny Black (sung to the tune of Five Green and Speckled Frogs)
Five crows all shiny black,
Sat on a scarecrow's back,
Eating some most delicious corn ... yum yum!
Scarecrow winked and shouted "Boo!"
Scared one crow and away he flew,
Now there are four black shiny crows, caw caw!
Scarecrow (sung to the tune of I'm A Little Teapot)
I'm a little scarecrow
Stuffed with hay,
Standing watch in my field all day.
When I see a crow
I like to shout:
"Hey, Mr. Crow, you'd better get out!"
Scarecrow, scarecrow- we'll be moving around following the lead of Mr. Scarecrow (like the Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear rhyme)
Gourd Exploration- we'll be touching and examining all different gourds
Harvest Sensory Tub- check out what it's in this month's tub
Corn Bread- we'll bake some yummy corn bread to enjoy

Can't wait to see all the fabulous stuff you guys do. Makes me sad that Canadian thanksgiving is already over. I'll just have to live vicariously through everyone else!ReplyDelete
Guess we missed the Harvest Moon this year. Looks like you have plenty of fun activities planned.ReplyDelete
Great post and thanks for joining WMCIR! I have no idea that there were so many books about Harvest Moon, we only read the last one. I am bookmarking the whole post for the next year.ReplyDelete
