October Puppets

Ok, so they are not real puppets but we are using them as such. 
These are the scarecrow and the pumpkins that we are using this month for puppets. The little play/song/poem thingy, that goes along with these is:

 Scarecrow, Scarecrow, 
They say you could scare a crow off a tree.
You scared the pumpkins
(Shake pumpkins and have them run away) 
But you didn't scare me!
(Shout “BOO!” to the scarecrow puppet and have it run away)
This is a fun, easy and quick little activity to play. It is also something that is great for your little one to mimic you doing. After watching you a one year old can easily shake the pumpkins and make them run away. You will find yourself saying this poem in your sleep because you have had to repeat it so many times this month! I already have it memorized! You can also take it a step further and add your own dialog; have the scarecrow talk to the pumpkins or to you to try to convince you to be scared, etc... 
Fun little activity! Enjoy it!
