15+Sweet Scarecrow Crafts For Kids
Scarecrows are synonymous with fall. They are such a fun and whimsical part of fall. However their history is pretty interesting.
During the Middle Ages in Britain and Europe, small children worked as “crow-scarers”. Their job was to run around in the fields, clapping blocks of wood together, to frighten away birds that might eat the grain. As the medieval period wound down and populations decreased due to plague in 1348, farmers discovered there was a shortage of spare children to scamper around and shoo the birds away. As an alternative, the farmers stuffed old clothes with straw, placed a turnip or gourd up on top, and mounted the figure in the fields. They soon found that these lifelike guardians did a pretty good job of keeping crows away. This idea eventually made it to the states where you began to see these life like figures grace fields and ready to shoo birds away.
Although you’ll see Scarecrows in the summer they are synonymous with Fall. They’ve even become a fun fall decoration.
There are so many ways to incorporate Scarecrows during the autumn. You can decorate with them, draw them, make them into delicious treats like my Scarecrow Grahams or best of all make them into fun crafts.
