Pine cone craft one after another. That’s what we do now. We can’t get enough of pine cones! My daughter still can’t put the crown and wand down and my little one is buzzing with DIY Bumblee bee toy from pine cones.
They are great natural craft supply for kids to work with. Pine cones, in general, are interesting things for little kids to play with. They love the texture of them and the size of a pine cone is perfect for those little hands.
Making this pine cone craft is simple
gather the supplies:
- pine cones (we used 11)
- color (we painted them with acrylic paint)
- some googly eyes and a tongue
Color the pine cones and let them dry. Then you can start tying them up with a rope. Fold the rope in half and place the pine cone in the middle. Tie it, making sure the rope is hidden between pine cone pieces in the lower part of the pine cone. Do the same with all the pine cones. Glue on googly eyes and tongue on the last pine cone.
Kids enjoyed coloring the pine cones in different colors. I helped by tying all of them with the rope. They placed the eyes and the tongue, I glued it on.
And now – it’s playtime! As always, we love when a craft turns into a toy for some imaginary play. It happens pretty often in our crafting world.
Turn kids’ pine cone craft into a home decor piece
And if the kids are done playing with the pine cone snake you can easily transform this into a colorful holiday wreath to hang it on the door or in the kids’ room. Just take take the googly eyes and the tongue off and tie the the end pine cones together with another rope.
