{Crafting with Your Kids} Pinecone Animals


Make fun Spring Animals with your kids out of pine cones and other crafting supplies from around the house. How cute!

My neighbors have gotten to know me all too well in the 2 years we have lived here. They know not to throw anything away without asking me about it. Even down to the smallest thing. The other day my neighbor brought me a really big pinecone. Like BIG and said “I know you can do something with this”! haha. He was right
So we went and collected one more, so each child could have one, and went to work making fun Spring Animals from our pinecones.

The kids picked what they wanted to make, and painted the pinecone accordingly (and everything else in site!)

Once they had painted, we used pipe cleaners, paper, colored popsicle sticks, googly eyes, and yarn to embellish and give the animals their features. Just hot glued them in place.

We love them!! The kids play with them all the time, but they are also a great addition to our Spring Décor right now!
