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.
I purposely choose a simple safety pin- I think it looks fresh, but you can group a few of these flowers together for more impact. They also would look great on a barrette. For this craft you will need: pine cones wood glue nail polish glue gun safety pin optional are: scissors and a wet wipe
Miniature Forest Make your own indoor forest with a few simple objects. Start with a wire frame and lots of pinecones. Working from the top of the frame, wedge dampened cones from white pine (moisture causes them to partially close) into the frame. Secure with dabs of hot glue. As the cones dry, they will open fully and interlock. Stand the pinecone tree in a gravel-filled planter.
