Scarecrows Theme










 Scarecrows Theme
Scarecrows derive their name from the duty they perform; a scarecrow is designed to scare birds or other animals from the harvest fields. Today, farmers will often hang pie tins or other noise makers from the arms of the scarecrow.  The noise keeps the animals from eating the fruits of the harvest while the scarecrow remains the decorative host.

I'm A Little Scarecrow
I'm A Little Scarecrow
Stuffed with hay
Here I stand in a field all day.
When I see the crows,
I like to shout,
"Hey! You crows, you better get out!"

Did You Ever See a Scarecrow? (Tune: Did You ever See A Lassie?)
Did you ever see a scarecrow,
A scarecrow, a scarecrow?
Did you ever see a scarecrow,
That's filled with dry hay?
He's dressed all in old clothes;
He scares off the black crows.
Have you ever seen a scarecrow,
That's filled with dry hay?

Scarecrow, scarecrow,
How scary can you be?
You scared away the crows
But you can't scare me!

5 Little Scarecrows (printable puppet PDF below)

5 Little Scarecrows all stuffed with hay;
Stood in the field on a sunny fall day!
The 1st one said, “It’s a beautiful autumn morn!”
The 2nd one said, “We’re here to protect the corn!”
The 3rd one said, “I’ll shoo the crows today!”
The 4th one said, “Let’s work hard and then we’ll PLAY!”
The 5th one said, “The crows are flying away!
Then the 5 Little Scarecrows took a break to RUN and PLAY
The crows didn’t DARE snack on field corn that day!

 Scarecrow, Scarecrow Turn Around
(To the tune of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, Turn Around)
Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, wink one eye.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend your knee.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, flap in the breeze.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head.

Scarecrow, scarecrow (twinkle, twinkle)
Scarecrow, Scarecrow turn around,
scarecrow, scarecrow touch the ground.
Stand up tall and blink your eyes,
Raise your hands up to the sky.
Clap your hands and tap your knees,
Turn around and tap your feet.

Scarecrow, Scarecrow touch your toes,
scarecrow, scarecrow tap your nose.
Swing your arms so very slow,
Now real fast to scare the crows.
Touch your head, jump up and down.
Now sit down without a sound.
