Open Ended Art ~ Painting with Pinecones

We have a beautiful pine tree in our backyard and had a great time collecting a bucket full of pine cones one day in the fall before it got to cold to play outside.  We recently had a great time painting with some of the dried out pine cones during our Art Group.
This was a fun Open Ended Art project and Sensory Activity.  It was fun to see how each child in the group approached this project.  Some rolled the pine cone, some tapped it on the paper and some didn’t want to do it at all.

Emily rolled, rubbed and tapped hers all over the paper.
