Parent and Tot Project !

Pine cone
Pumpkin

I had a grand idea and while it didn’t turn out the way I envisioned it was still fun to make with my son and I will share it here.
  1. Gather your materials. You will need pine cones, paint, a green pipe cleaner and a hot glue gun.
  2. Start by mixing red and yellow together to make orange paint. This craft uses a lot of paint so we took this opportunity to have a color lesson and my son loves to mix paint.
  3. My plan was to use a paint brush but my son found that rolling the pine cones was faster and better than a brush. So roll!
  4. Let the pine cones dry.
  5. This is the parent part of the craft, I used a ton of hot glue ! Lay out the first level and then glue together.
  6. Add another layer or two. filling in the gaps.
  7. When you are happy that it looks like a pumpkin twist the pipecleaner to look like a stem and glue it in.
  8. Try not to hurt your husband when you ask him if he knows what it is and he replies ” Cute Grapes!” .

    That is awesome! I have a 3 year old little boy, and an 18mo little boy and I am constantly beating myself up for not having fun projects to keep us busy besides toys and the television. I found your blog link on a friends blog. I will be visiting frequently. Thanks for sharing your time and talents with others!
