Pine Cone Christmas Ornaments


Need a super simple Christmas ornament project? So simple that two three year olds did it while their Mommy’s relaxed on the floor with the babies? So engrossing that half an hour later they were still at it? Here it is! You only need four things to make this: a package of ten glitter pens from Dollar Tree, two Ponderosa pine cones from a tree near Grandma’s house, ribbon, and a three year old. That’s it. Set them free. The fine motor skills needed to wield the glitter pens and open and close them are the perfect mix of challenging and achievable. When they are dry, which took two days at our house due to the amount of glue put on them, tie a ribbon around the cone and hang on your tree.

    Sometimes those pine cones can have a sharp point on the ends. No squeals of pain during this?
