After nightfall, Scarecrow and friends have a playtime adventure!

Scarecrow plays by the light of the moon.

He jumps rope and dances and belts out a tune.

Ghoulies and ghosties have fun through the night.

Then as the sun rises, they scurry from sight.

As night time falls and the moon appears, magic is building in the air. The time has finally come, and Scarecrow is ready to play. Slowly, all his friends start to arrive and they all have a good time. But soon, playtime is over and the sun starts to rise. Back at his post, Scarecrow bids his friends good night as he thinks of the next time the moon will rise and the magic will return.

Scarecrow Magic is spooky fun that's just perfect for Halloween!
