This how to draw a scarecrow was inspired by one of our best friends. He sent us a picture of a totally awesome scarecrow, that he drew all by himself. I asked his mom if it would be ok to make a video about it, and she said we could. Check out his awesome drawing!

So, we also wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! This will probably be our last fall post, because it’s now officially Christmas time…wahooo!

      Awe thanks, Crystal! We have our little friend to thank, he’s the one who drew it first :)

      So glad you’re using it in your homeschooling co-op…please tell us how it goes. I’d love to know if they found it easy enough to do.
