Inside: This frosted pinecone craft creates a beautiful decoration for winter. Goes perfectly with the book Penguin and Pinecone!
Adding white paint and glitter is a festive preschool winter pinecone craft! We call them “frosty pinecones”. We asked our preschoolers and their families to collect pinecones in their yards over the weekend. They brought a nice collection to school on Monday, so we had variety to choose from. This activity tied in nicely with the book “Penguin and Pinecone” by Salina Yoon. When finished, they made a nice display on our science shelf.

Collecting the pinecones:
Before beginning this art project, we first explored our pinecone collection. As the children brought their pinecones to school, they placed them on our science shelf. We compared their sizes.
