The Fun Continues Until Halloween

Our kick off day is just the beginning! From September 21st until Halloween, there are still lots of ways to enjoy Scarecrow Fest:
 

DIY Build-A-Crow Station

Bring the kids, bring the friends, and make your own scarecrow to decorate your home for Thanksgiving and Halloween!  Last year, over 200 scarecrows were born at Arts Nursery! It's a fun family and group activity for a worthwhile cause.  Your minimum donation of $12 helps to support three wonderful charities. 
 
  • What's included? Your donation provides you with a wooden frame, straw for stuffing, a burlap head, face making station, as well as our expert scarecrow building advice and all the tools and equipment you will need. 
  • What do I need to bring? Old clothes and decorating accessories (shirt, pants, hat, glasses, etc.) - anything to add personality to your crow.

 

Scavenger Hunt

Search the nursery for 50+ crazy, creative scarecrows sponsored by local businesses. You just might find characters from The Incredibles, Avengers, and many more. Come on down to find them all! Complete the scavenger hunt and ENTER TO WIN a Family Gift Basket.
 

 

 

Field Trips

Book your class or group for a Scarecrow Making field trip and then complete a self-guided Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt in search of our fun themed scarecrows. Proceeds from your field trip support our three local charities. It’s a fun team building exercise for all ages!

How Do Field Trips Work?
  • We supply the frame, burlap, straw for stuffing, and a face making station
  • You bring in your own clothes and accessories to add a personality to each scarecrow
  • Take home your completed scarecrow or display it at school to decorate for Thanksgiving & Halloween!
  • The cost is $75 per group; this includes 1-5 scarecrows  - each additional crow is charged at $15 per crow.
