Now, tell me. Isn’t that a beautiful idea? And easy (I love easy!!!).
What do you have to do? Well, first, grab a lovely bag (some have a special “treasure bag”) and then take a nice walk with your kids, gathering some well-shaped pine cones and suitable wooden twigs. While gathering, try to get writ of all the seeds that could be in the pine cones. Back at home, the next fun step can begin! Painting!
Take all the possible measures to avoid getting paint all over your place (hint: you’ll never get 100% protection!). And then just paint the pine cones together with your kids in bright colours and the twigs dark green (or whatever your kids want, why should they be restricted?). Toddlers can help just as well, just use some appropriate colour material. The result might not be that nice as in the picture, but, really, who cares about the results? It is all about the fun!!! Next step is to make the leafs, two for each rose are enough. Just get some paper and paint. Then cut out the leafs. Ready! The last step is to put it all together. The suggestion is to use a hot glue gun and glue for doing that.
