Pine Cone Crafts for Kids


These pine cone crafts for kids are fun for children who love trees and art crafts. The pine tree, an evergreen, produces the most wonderfully scented pine needles and also drops many of its cones to the ground.

These crafts make the best use of what a pine tree has to offer. So why not get started and see if you have what it takes to make the best possible crafts from the pine tree's gifts in pine cone crafts for kids.

What kind of wild, imaginary animals can you make out of pine cones? Try our pine cone creatures craft and find out!

What You'll Need:

  • Pine cone
  • Decorations
  • Craft glue

For each creature, you'll need one large pine cone. You'll also need an assortment of decorations (old buttons, scrap cloth, pipe cleaners, real or plastic flowers.)

Use these decorations to turn the pine cone into an imaginary animal. Pipe cleaners work well for creating legs. When you're done, give your creature a name, and make up a story about it.
