Aah! Christmas is almost here and I have hardly posted any crafts. I thought I'd share this one anyway because it was so much fun to do.
Last year we painted pinecones and decorated with glitter, but I don't know what happened to them. I couldn't find them this year so, of course, we had to make some new ones. Back in June we did this open-ended craft with pine cones and Mina stuck pom poms all over her pinecone, so I knew those had to be part of our Christmas tree pinecones this year.
I let the girls each pick a color because, like usual, they don't like to use the conventional colors for things (which makes it more fun, I think). Lou chose to paint hers pink.
I had to include this shot of Mina- just look at the look of concentration on her face. She was very careful and deliberate with the paint. She normally loves painting anyway, but I think a 3-D object always makes it much more interesting.
The finished Christmas trees- a fun decoration and a fun activity
