Instructions:
  1. Paint the fence with brown and let dry.
  2. ADULT:  Cut the dowel rod into 3 pieces: 1 longer piece for the scarecrow, and 2 shorter pieces for the corn.
  3. Use the brown marker to draw a pumpkin face on one of the pumpkins. Cut narrow strips of orange foam for the scarecrow’s straw arms and legs. Glue a dowel rod and straw legs and arms sandwiched in between 2 leaves, as shown, leaving a little bit of dowel sticking up at the top to attach the pumpkin head. Sandwich the dowel at top between the pumpkin face and another pumpkin.
  4. Adhere the corn to the 2 remaining dowel pieces. Remove the flower head from one of the sunflower stickers and adhere to another sunflower sticker. Glue a button to the flower head.
  5. Cut a 6-inch x 2-inch block of green foam. Cut a piece of tan foam to fit around the block; cut along one edge to give the appearance of grass. Glue the tan grass around the foam block. Insert all of the pieces into the foam block. Embellish with stickers and letters. Outline and detail some of the stickers if desired.
