Nearby, just down the hill, there are two wheat fields. Head towards them, and you’ll find three scarecrows scattered around the area. Using your tongue, lick them with the Square button on PlayStation or the X button on Xbox and drag them back to the aforementioned sacrificial circle.

Placing them in the circle will “sacrifice” them. Once you’ve sacrificed all three Scarecrows, you’ll solve the Children of the Hay event and permanently unlock the Scarecrow skin for you to sport in-game. It’s pretty cool.
