Today my mom and I took the little one out to the Scarecrow Festival that my teen was volunteering at. We tossed the house looking for clothes he'd outgrown ( yes, those are my absolute favorite pants to dress him in, and yes, they're far too short). Armed with a pile of clothes we went out, bought the heads for $2 a piece, and helped ourselves to about a third of a bale of straw. The park district provided fabric markers and a directions sheet. All in all, it took about 45 minutes to build three, and it was a lot of messy fun.
What traditions does your family have for celebrating the harvest season?
