Every Monday we enjoy a lovely walk to our local library for story time. There’s plenty to see along the way, passing through the River Pinn Meadows and I love watching how curious my children are about the things they see. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve enjoyed studying the trees change colour and have collected pocketfuls of acorns and pine cones.
I thought we should make something with them so searched for nature crafts on Pinterest and found some fun pine cone spiders. As well as pine cones we needed pipe cleaners for legs and googly eyes.
We twisted the pipe cleaners around the scales of the pine cone, underneath and around the other side to make the legs. We did this three times until we ran out of space. My son added a pair of googly eyes and we were done.
