Autumn is my absolute favourite time of the year, I love it when the leaves start to turn pretty shades of red and orange, pinecones cover the floor and the smell of fireworks lingers in the mornings.
Z and S like nothing better than going out on bikes hunting for pinecones, so I took them out to look for some craft inspiration.
We collected a big box of pinecones to take home.
We let baby H feel them and then thought about what to make. Z wanted to make a pinecone man, and S wanted to make a fairy. We found some glue, pipe cleaners and googly eyes and got to work. This is what we made. What do you think?
You could also make a pinecone weather station or some lovely autumn goo.
