Making Scarecrows

IMG_1102Sometimes, the chores are all done and you have to do something totally frivolous.

We had a bunch of kids at the house yesterday to help us assemble the three scarecrows for which we had gotten the “ingredients.”  It was a simple trip to the Goodwill on Half-Price Wednesday for three XL flannel shirts, three pairs of really big pants, and three straw hats.

Then we grabbed some wooden garden stakes, baling twine, burlap sacks, and a bale of mulch and we were ready to go.

In the end, we had three “lovely” scarecrows and everyone had a good time making them.  In the words of our four-year-old neighbor, Kiki, it was “the best scarecrow making day EVER!”

Never mind that it was the only scarecrow making day ever.  Just never mind that.
