HOW MANY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLERS DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A SCARECROW?
5 third graders to collect leaves and gather hay
3 fourth graders to stuff the hay and leaves into a t-shirt
3 fifth graders to fill a pair of jeans with hay and leaves
2 artistically inclined third graders to draw a whimsically frightening face
(1 Apple Corps blog reader to do the math!)
Sand Point Elementary’s ‘Garden Club Recess’ honored the fall season this past week with the construction of a scarecrow. The newest addition to the garden has brought new life to the space keeping our kale, garlic, cabbage, and herbs company. It has also succeeded in deterring some of the wildlife that has been munching on our veggies.
But do not despair, our newest friend is actually quite welcoming and has attracted a whole new crowd. The scarecrow has been a hit with our young gardeners and has also had the chance to acquaint itself with Squeakers, a very sociable guinea pig!
