Fall parties and festivals are perfect to enjoy this big-time arts and crafts project. Kids cooperate and combine their creativity as small groups scurry in this art-based relay race.
Before the party: Divide the list of party guests into teams. Each team will work together to turn paper bags into a scarecrow. Each scarecrow uses 10 paper bags: one large grocery bag for the body, one medium-sized bag for the head, and two small lunch bags for each arm and leg.
At the party: Guests turn bags inside out to hide print. Each team uses Crayola® Washable Markers to draw a face on the head. Draw hair or cut strips of construction paper with Crayola Scissors and attached with masking tape. Children younger than age 3 can safely tear strips of paper for hair.
Draw patterned shirts, pants, fingers, boots or toes, and other details on the remaining bags. Stuff bags with lightly wadded newspaper. Close each bag with masking tape.
To play the game: Gather each team's scarecrow parts in one area. Place a chair and roll of masking tape for each team a short distance away from the team's pile of scarecrow parts. This area is the relay race space.
Teams members participate in a relay race. Taking turns, each runner scurries to get a scarecrow part and bring it to the chair. Other team members work together to add each part to the scarecrow. Who will be first to finish building the scarecrow?
