Fall Patchwork Scarecrows

It's starting to get cooler here in the Midwest, which means hay rides and pumpkin patch visits.  What better time than to create some fall-loving scarecrows.  For this 2nd grade lesson, we used 9 X 12 white sulphite paper and black crayons to draw the scarecrow.  We added the details with fluorescent crayons, beeswax crayons and then finished with a watercolor wash of purples and blues.  This lesson took two, 50 minute periods to complete.  The result is a whole "patch" of cute, colorful scarecrows with loads of personality!

Happy fall,
