Autumn, Pumpkins and Scarecrows...OH, MY!

We started making Autumn decorations for the classroom and for our homes a few weeks ago and are continuing until Thanksgiving week.  I did some of the same projects as year's past and then added a few new ones that I'll show you today! 

I love these hand print fall trees!  We used old magazines and a leaf punch to make leaf cutouts to glue to our hand/arms.  This was a great project for little fingers to work on small motor skills!

Sunflowers made with flower petals, brown circle middles, (chopstick) stems and real seeds glued in the center.
I made a fall garden on our large windows complete with a picket fence, leaf border, crows and scarecrows!

Aren't these scarecrows cute?  The kids had a great time making these.  First we talked about each shape and what each shape could be used for (as a body part).  Details were added with markers and straw.  These scarecrows protected our beautiful sunflowers!

I also forgot to let everyone know of a very special guest blog post I was able to do a few weeks ago!  My friend over at Granny Goes To School asked me to write about process art and the importance of it.  It was so much fun to write it!  You can read my quest post here.
