Last week Arlecdon Primary school Early Years class story basket had The Scarecrow’s Wedding along with some scarecrow puppets and other story props.
So, last Thursday instead of children coming into our class we had a lot of different little scarecrows. Some were wearing flowery dresses, some in dungarees, others in jeans and shirts but all of them were wearing flippy floppy hats. The scarecrows brought in with them lots of food for our Harvest basket for the local Foodbank.
The scarecrows wanted some mini-me puppets just like the children’s little ones we had played with earlier in the week. So, using wooden spoons and craft materials we made little scarecrows to play with and use in our story play. We named them after the characters in The Scarecrow’s Wedding - Betty O’Barley, Harry O’Hay or Reginald Rake.
We made local press with this event. Click here to read the full article.
