This is an oldie but a goodie--making Christmas trees out of pine cones and pom-poms.

How We Did It

Pine Cone & Pom-Pom Christmas Trees

My daughter was so excited when I presented her with a bag of sparkly red and white holiday pom-poms that I picked up for $1 and a pine cone from the yard. (Hooray for the little things in life!)

Perhaps it was the way I placed the pine cone on her art table or she'd seen this before, but without any prompting she said, "I'm going to decorate this as a Christmas tree!"

She got right to work, using dots of school glue on some of the pine cone's scales to adhere the pompoms to the pine cone.

After creating the little red and white one, she dug into our craft supplies to (successfully) find more pom-poms, and decided that the little tree needed a "rainbowy mommy tree" - naturally!

Sometimes these classic crafts from our own childhoods have staying power with our little ones!
