Are you looking for a fun no-cost outing to enjoy with your young children? How about an afternoon of pinecone gathering? Having a fresh bag of pinecones on hand is a must for fall and winter decorating. Pinecones add an earthy natural touch to your home’s décor, and can be found in a variety of sizes and shapes. Best of all, they’re so easy to decorate with! Add pinecones to your holiday centerpieces, use them as place card holders, and display them in bunches on your fireplace mantle. With a little imagination the possibilities are endless! So bundle up your kids, give them a paper bag, and head to the nearest patch of pine. Then let your imagination take it from there!
