The Scarecrow

The family is on an outing. Mother and father are laying the picnic table, meanwhile the small ones start playing on a meadow. The hen wanders into somebody's vegetable patch and is scared to half-death seeing a scarecrow. Everybody starts looking for her and the little brother encounters a snake. But the hen is brave now and ends up as the hero of the day.
