painting pine cones

This is a great activity to do outside on a nice autumn day. It is a wonderful fine motor and attention-building activity; painting an entire pine cone takes a lot of focus and time. Collect your pine cones on a nature walk ahead of time if you don't have any nearby.

I ended up filling another paint cup with glue. Paint the glue on with a paint brush and then sprinkle the glitter on. Glitter in a shaker bottle is handy for this!
Getting set up.
What you need:
  • pine cones
  • washable paint
  • paint brushes
  • smocks (it gets messy!)
  • glue and glitter (optional)


It's hard to get in all the nooks and crannies!


Letting them dry.
