Scarecrow building

Scarecrow building 1

A couple weekends ago, pre-flu we went to the free Scarescrow building as part of the Perth Fringe festival. Like most free events, it was crazy busy & all the good stuff went straight away. But we did have lots of fun throwing hay around & we built a baby scarecrow. I did learn a few silly things too…

Tips for family friendly scarecrow building
*Thinks outside the box, note that for free events, stuff runs out. You may need to use a flat piece of plastic for a head.
*Don’t forget about baby scarecrows (they require less hay stuffing).

Baby scarecrow

*Do not bitch about the mum’s hogging all the craft stuff at the craft table infront of son (on the car ride home). He may repeat the b word (once…)
*Cant beat them then join them. Yes I put Kobe on the craft table so I could have free hands to quickly grab what we could to make a scarecrow face. Hence giving those greedy mums who don’t share a taste of their own medicine hee hee.
Please note the heat makes me extra catty I think…

Finished scarecrow

*The more individual the scarecrow the better. We are afterall in the 20th century. Scarecrows with nose piercings should be accepted just like scarecrows without. Same as same sex scarecrows, scarecrow with disabilities & scarecrows with tattoos. Equality for all:)

More scarecrows

*Just because it was 38 degrees plus, don’t let a whole lot of sweat stop you from finishing. And drink plenty of water!
*Glue. Lots of glue. Quickdrying the better.

Hand holding

*And most of all have fun. If not then why bother making a scarecrow?

I cant wait for the Myattsfield Winery annual scarescrow festival later this year:)

I hope everyone is making the most of their weekend:)
