When I taught Kindergarten, each Fall I would make a scarecrow with my class, and I've continued the tradition with Ella and Zoe.
Their first Halloween they were only 6 months old, so it didn't happen that year. But the following year, when they were 18 months, they helped make their first family scarecrow -- and have helped each year since. It's turned into a fun family tradition : )
Ella helped with the pants.
Zoe helped with the gloves.
They both loved looking at Mr. Pumpkin Man and rearranging the other pumpkins in our Halloween Display.
Zoe's turn stuffing the shirt.
Ella's turn stuffing the shirt.
Both girls were fascinated by the pants.
And by the end result.
Zoe thought he was great, though Ella was a bit unsure.
And our Halloween Display continued to grow.
Ella did a lot of examining.
So did Zoe.
They also both worked together quite well.
And they both were pretty comfortable cuddling with him.
Looking at these photos Makes My Monday, and definitely puts a smile on my face!!
