My kid loves collecting things. He has a “Collection Box” full of rocks, sticks, and tickets to various museums that we’ve visited. Now that pine cones are falling, he’s started adding them to the mix. Since we’ll soon have approximately 1,000 pine cones in our lives, I think that some pine cone crafts are in order.
