Around here, we normally have a bunch of corn stalks or some pumpkins but, sadly I didn't think about corn stalks and we didn't get any pumpkins. So, when Cole came home with a 'sandbox bucket' an idea began to form. how about a scare crow? Sure! So, dad's shirt, play clothes overalls, brown gloves, Wengers belt and buckle, old stocking hat, my old boots, a garbage bag full of hay, and a pumpkin head(sandbox bucket)
Thus, we begin our scare crow.
Stuffing Mr. Black. He's really not too fat. He was at first, but I put him on a diet by taking some hay out of him. Wouldn't it be nice if it was that easy to lose some weight?
The hardest part was getting his shoes to stay on. For now, they really are just setting on the ground
with the pant legs stuck in. Gabe has a hat that sadly didn't fit Mr. Black. So I set it on his head.
Hi!! I'm Mr. Black.
If any of you have seen the sugar creek gang movies, you'll understand his name.
But I think that our scarecrow is MUCH better!
He has a nice attitude; very calm and quiet. Always smiling I'm afraid he's the only one though.
He was the perfect size; since the overalls were
Cole's size, he was rather short with long arms.
Cole rather like dancing with him:)
P.S. I was tempted to make you IL people come out her to see him. ---drive by?-
