Crafting - Painted Pine cones

You know already that i am not the biggest crafter in the world. I never been but i am trying. So since i've been stuck with a leg in a cast for the last 45 days i've been doing quite a lot of it with my 4 year old.
Most of them were just for the sake of it as Kara just enjoys the play and the time spent together.
One of the crafts she really enjoyes this last month and half was the painting the pine cones.
Every time she went out with her grandparents she picks many as she can. 
Here is how they looked like:

It is a very easy craft and you need the minimum of tools.

What you need:
  • acrylic paints or any other paints you have
  • pine cones
  • glitter
  • glue 
  • brushes
Wash the pine cones very well after you picked them as sometimes they can have mud or insescts on them. Dry them on a towel. When they are dry you can start to colour them and glitter them as per your heart will.
