Here in Northeast Florida we have A LOT of pine trees! My girls are always collecting them and wanting to bring them in the house to make crafts with. One day we had an entire dining table full of pinecones and little bugs! YUCK! Pinecones make amazing crafts for little ones, especially if you can collect them yourself. They are also free, but if you aren’t careful you can have a table full of free bugs as well!
Here is a round up up fun pinecone crafts for preschoolers, as well as instructions on how to clean them and de-bug them first!
