We didn’t have a car last weekend so had to entertain ourselves within walking distance. On Saturday we set off into the woods with a picnic to find pinecones and sticks.
After dinner, I set the children loose with the pinecones and some craft materials.
We had a bit of a googly eye shortage, so ended up making one eyed aliens, then Z wanted to make them glow in the dark.
Cutest aliens ever? Sorry about the photo’s, its really hard to take good photo’s in the dark.
The glow in the dark paint is from ELC.
We just so happen to have pine cones just desperate to become something. Now I know what! Thanks for the idea!

GENIUS! They are 100% brilliant BEFORE you added the glow in the dark paint and with it, they are even cooler!!
Thanks for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!

So cute! Glow in the dark paint from ELC hey? We have ELC in Australia so I will have to see if they stock their glow in the dark paint here, so cool!
Who knew a pinecone could be such a great alien =)
Ok, your aliens in the dark look pretty convincing! My buddies would love this!
So cute,I love them!
