Fall is a nice time to go on a nature hike in the woods with your kids and collect a few treasures. While picking up some favorite natural souvenirs, make sure to bring home a good bunch of pine cones.
When you see all of the pine cone crafts that you can create, you will know why you need a bunch! Kids will enjoy the process of collecting their pine cones and then turning them into one of these fun projects. Another win-win idea I think! Plus, these crafts are also budget friendly since you are borrowing the majority from nature.
This is a round-up of my favorite pine cone crafts for kids. You can get to all of the full tutorials by simply clicking on the photos.
1. Pine Cone Squirrel by Family Crafts.
I love the idea of taking something from nature, like a pine cone, and creating something else seen in nature, like a squirrel! This little guy will look cute proudly displayed in a child's room on a shelf or dresser.
2. Pine cone snowman by Kaboose.
When the snow falls, this craft will be fun to do to bring a little wintry fun inside.
3. Pine cone birds by Parents.
Oh my! These are so cute and so easy! I just love the big eyes on these little pine cone birds.
4. Christmas pine forest by Let's Go Fly A Kite.
All that is needed for a whole forest of Christmas trees are some pine cones, pom poms and wine corks. A snowy base and an added deer makes a perfect Christmas setting for a kids table.
5. Pine cone pumpkin by Craft Elf.
And, for Halloween, a pine cone pumpkin made from a pine cone and pipe cleaners.
