Festival of Fall Fun
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World

Scarecrows and Bats

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...


Creating Yarn Scarecrow

  • 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!
