|Pencils in the Haystack
bale of hay,large number of pencils,small fall stickers or marker,prizes
Take many of the pencils and mark them with either a sticker or a marker - these will be the prize winners. Then stick the prize pencils and all the other pencils all around the bale of hay in a random manner. The more pencils you have, the better it looks! ,Have children pick a pencil. Children get to keep the pencils - and if they get a marked pencil, they get an extra prize (small toy, sticker,etc.) Try calling local merchants (banks,doctors,etc) to see if they have pencils with their business names to donate for this activity!
