It’s that time of the year, for nature hikes and camping! So after your Thanksgiving feast go on a walk and have the little ones pick up pinecones for a craft when they get back home. It’s really easy to make and they turned out so adorable. I teamed up with some other fabulous bloggers from our little group called All Things Kids–to bring you some fun Thanksgiving Ideas & Crafts.
A nature walk that involves collecting things is my sons favorite thing to do. Though I do have to sift through some of his collection because he also likes to collect trash: cigarette buds, popscicle sticks, used napkins…..
Please someone else tell me you totally know what I mean (it will make me feel better :)).
We decided to make some pine cone pets. He has a handful of pine cones so we started with an easy one, the good old wise owl. Check out this other cute owl we made using an acorn and sticks here.
Nature Walk Craft: Pine Cone Pets
How to make your own Pine Cone pet:

Cut out oval shapes from brown felt for the wings.
Cut out oval shapes from white felt for the eyes
Cut out a triangle from orange felt for the nose.
We put Cheddar in a box for my son to have as a pet. Best pet ever! We’ve had him for years now.
