Pine cones

Nature provides us with many things such as food, air to breath and also craft supplies!!! Last week we went on a nature walk and under a great pine tree found pine cones nestled onto pine needles. We soon collected a basket, gave thanks to mother Earth and promised to make good use of them.

Our first project has been getting out the paint brushes and paints to paint our tree like friends.

A few days later I cut some lengths of felt and glued them to our decorative treasures. They now hang from our seasonal wreath which hangs over our kitchen table. When the children noticed their pieces of art hanging above they exclaimed in excitement and were very proud!
