It’s that time of year again where we celebrate fall by going to pumpkin patches, picking out a costume for Halloween, and visiting our local farm.
We always make sure to stop and see the scarecrow that’s at the farm. He’s fun to look at with his straw hat on, smiling face, and arms outstretched as if welcoming you into the rows of corn!
The kids are always mesmerized by him- even the tiniest ones who can’t quite make out his face.
Why not use these fun printable scarecrow coloring pages to bring fall farm fun home with you?
Coloring is a great activity for kids. It’s loads of fun and helps them develop important skills like concentration, focus, patience as well!
