Using plant pots, make a scarecrow for outside.
- 2 large plastic plant pots
- 1 smaller plastic plant pot (the top of which should fit snugly onto the bottom of the larger plant pot)
- 1 large wooden spoon
- 1 yogurt cup that fits over the wooden spoon (cover with aluminium foil)
- 6-8 mini wooden clothes pins
- 1 plastic bag
- 1 fabric scrap
- 2 sponges - pre-cut 2 long strips (arms) and two small rectangles (for yogurt cup)
- Stones (from the garden)
- All-purpose white glue (optional)
- Fill one of the large pots with stones.
- Flip the other large pot upside-down and place on top of the first pot.
- Tape all the way around where the two pots meet to stick them together.
- Flip the smaller pot upside-down and tape to the top of the other pot.
- Set aside scarecrow body
- Squish two small strips of sponge into the yogurt cup so that they stay when you turn the cup upside-down.
- Cut a plastic bag in half across the middle and then cut into strips, but do not cut all the way to the edge.
- To create the scarecrow's hair, attach the strips of bag with tape to the inside of the yogurt cup.
- Use markers to draw a scarecrow face on the wooden spoon.
- Using tape, place the wooden spoon between the two little sponges in the yogurt cup.
- Place spoon and cup into hole at the top of the scarecrow body.
- Clip 3 or 4 mini clothes pins to the ends of the sponge strips to look like fingers.
- Tape sponge strips to the sides of the smaller plant pot (turned upside down)
- Fold the fabric scrap into a triangle shape and tie ends together in a double knot around the scarecrow's neck.
