Game description

The group is divided into teams of two or three players who each receive a bale of straw. The objective is to build a scarecrow and dress it afterwards. To do so, they can use either potato sacks of old pieces of fabric, whatever is available. Should a real scarecrows casting be carried out, those kids who are not working on the scarecrow can be the jury.


The winner is the team with the best scarecrow.
