CoordinArt- October provides unique, fun x/y plotting practice as we head into the time of the fall harvest and Halloween. Check it out the designs!
Scarecrow: Scarecrows were put up in fields by farmers to scare crows away from their crops. Farmers hoped the crows would think the scarecrow was the him, and therefore would fly away. Unfortunately, the stuffed figure did not fool the crows. Many farmers attached things to the scarecrow such as tin cans on strings that would move as the wind blew. The unexpected movement did help discourage some crows. Even though the scarecrow has remained basically uneffective it remains to be a well-recognized figure throughout America and Europe. "The Wizard of Oz" brought special endearment for the scarecrow as we watched his journey down the Yellow Brick Road to ask the wizard for a brain. Scarecrows have become fun symbols represent the fall harvest.
Pumpkin: Ready to be selected from the local pumpkin patch is this CoordinArt design! Kids love to visit a pumpkin patch and select their very own pumpkin. Once home they may use either markers or get help cutting out a fun design that will look even better after dark with a candle burning bright within it. Charles Schultz made the pumpkin patch endearing to all with his cartoon episode of "The Great Pumpkin".
Jack O'Lantern: Children through America enjoy picking out a pumpkin that they take home and with the help of an adult carve into a Jack O'Lantern. They proudly display the Jack O'Lantern lit with a candle for Halloween night. Many people have gotten quite creative and competitive with the intricate designs they have done on a pumpkin. The origin of the Jack O'Lantern actually comes from an Irish legend. For this legend and the history of other related Halloween traditions
