Art Lesson: Scarecrows

Happy Halloweeen everyone! Its good to have some fun with drawing. This lessons was just that.Fun!

We learned a little about what scarecrows are used for. We talked about gardens, who had a garden at their home what they grew. We talked about crows and how birds like to get into the gardens to eat the food. Scarecrows are used to scare away the critters from the garden.

This lesson was fun for the kids. It gave great options. Kids were given four options.

  1. Do you want to draw a group of scarecrows or just one?
  2. Do you want to draw Pumpkins on the ground?
  3. Do you want to draw corn stalks in the background?
  4. Do you want to draw Crows?
  5. What color do you want the scarecrows clothes to be?

       Giving options keeps kids creatively thinking and unique!
