On one of the few dry afternoons of the holidays I went out for a walk and collected a few pinecones. So many options for things to make with them. We added some bits of felt, coloured pipecleaners and of course a few googly eyes and here's what the Elfins came up with:
A mouse with pink ears and a long tail
Sky diving pinecones, complete with their own parachutes
A very colourful bird
The pioneers started out on some bead work, there is still more to go but they are looking great already. They are planing to sew them onto leather bracelets to finish them off but here's a sneak preview of their work so far.
