Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyFeetSlippers Great scarecrow craft
The scratch off tool didn't work well, we used quarters instead. The wooden tools are better.

We are trying to get NAMI out of the shadows in our community... so we are heading towards every "community event" in our county. These are easily scratched off with the sticks so it is a great activity for the real little ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amara A big hit!
I used these for kids in grades K-3, and they loved 'em. I noticed after I got them that they only came with 12 scratching sticks, so I cut off some wooden skewers I had for the other 12, which worked fine. After the craft was completed, I collected the sticks to keep for the next time (and because they're pretty sharp). Some of the black ink was off on a few of the scarecrows, but I touched those up with some India ink. (Some of the younger kids just scratched off all the ink anyway!) Everyone enjoyed them.
