Raking Leaves and making scarecrow cookies

I have fond memories of fall, raking leaves and making what mom called dummies but many refer to as scarecrows. We would spend all day raking leaves putting them in bags and oh my we would have so much fun while doing this. From raking pile of leaves and jumping in them to the outlined houses or mansions as we called them where we would play with our dolls for hours to using old clothes my mom saved for us to make dummies. These scare crow cookies are easy to make and will be the hit of any fall party as well. The recipe comes from here a great place to visit and find many other awesome fun ideas.
White frosting
Assorted sugar wafers
Candy corn
Mini chocolate chips
Bran cereal
Chocolate sprinkles
Frost the top of each cookie.
Sweet Scarecrows -
Cut a sugar wafer in half. Add a dollop of frosting to the top edge of the cookie and stick a wafer half to it for a hat top, as shown.
Place a whole sugar wafer just below the hat top for a brim. Use a little more frosting to decorate it with slices of candy corn or mini chocolate chips.
Press pieces of bran cereal hair into the frosting around the hat.
For the face, press on a candy corn nose, mini chocolate chip eyes, and a chocolate sprinkle stitched mouth.
