Paint Dipped Pinecones: Just because Christmas is over and gone, it doesn’t follow that you have to give up all of your winter decorations. Bring a little winter woodlands into your house during the post holiday months with these pretty dipped pinecones. If the cones around you aren’t fully opened (open cones look best) dry them out in the oven on the lowest setting until they open completely.
Image inspiration! Create a scavenger hunt for a hike during which you collect a variety of pine cones which you later use to create a piece of art for the home or classroom using string and a fallen branch (which can also be collected on our hike). Talk about nature as art and/or diversity in nature.
