It's October and our house is full of golden pumpkins, spooky witches, and flying bats. We've even decorated Off the Shelf! So, we thought this would be the perfect time to celebrate scarecrows and bats with books, art projects, recipes and more.
This week we are...
- Bats at the Library
- The Little Scarecrow Boy
- The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
- Yarn Scarecrows (pictured)
Use lengths of yarn and scraps of fabric to make a festive fall friend.
- Scarecrow Banner
Use shape recognition skills to make a fun hanging that doubles as decoration.
- Hand-Wing Bats
A science lesson and art project in one make for a batty-good time.
- Storytime Flying Bat
These bats are so cute you will want them in your belfry!
- Cornbread Crackers
Everything you love about cornbread baked in to a snackable cracker!
- Scarecrow Trail Mix
So tasty the scarecrows will want to come in from the field!
- A Batty Good Snack (pictured)
Irresistibly cute! Enough said.
Flapping and Stomping
- Move Like a Bat and Bat Caves
- The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything offers wonderful prompts for creative movement. Can your young reader Stomp Stomp or Wiggle Wiggle?
So, what are you and your young reader doing this week?
