All of my children love the fun, repetition in the story. My son had me read it to him several times and he enjoyed saying the parts that repeat. Making Learning Fun is the best resource I have fun for activities to go along with this book. Including these flannel board pieces. (and yes, my son is still kind of a sickie)
It also has great activities including the story stick, matching game, matching game, and more.
Of course, my son wanted to paint so we made this scarecrow also from Making Learning Fun.
This is a really fun roll/spin a scarecrow game.
There is also a large scarecrow with this printable. My son had a great time saying what the book said as he built the scarecrow. Example, "The boots go clomp, clomp."
