Container with water
Collect pine cones outdoors. They are very common this season. We collect some on our way to and from school :) Place old newspapers on your table for ease of clean up. If you have more then one paint brush you can put out one for each color (in that case you don't need the container with water to clean your brush in between changing colors.) Give your child the pine cone and let them paint it how ever they like! If you have many pine cones.. this is a fun family activity to spend time together. When you are done leave your pine cones to dry.
