Again, Talia loves anything messy and she loves painting. I grabbed a few of the cinnamon-scented pinecones leftover from Chrstimas so she could make some snowy pinecones. I think it would be a great idea to go on a nature walk & find your own pinecones (like Emily at Learning Vicariously did), but we haven't done that, so this was the next best thing.
Talia noticed that when we turned her finished snowy pinecone on its end, it looked like a tree. I suggested that we might paint some green next time, and make pinecone trees. I have lots of leftover pinecones, so that'll be our next painting project :)
