Pinecone Crafts for Kids?

I am looking for easy (ages, 6, 8, and 10) crafts to make with grandchildren. We live in a forest area so pinecones are readily available. Thank you for any help you can give.

Cover them in peanut butter and then roll in bird seed and hang them up. You can also cover them in glue and roll in glitter.

One year I made Christmas wreaths - Take each pine cone and put glitter on - I used spray glue and then green or red glitter in a bag and shook each pine cone. I then screwed little closed hook pins in the bottom of each pine cone and tied Christmas ribbon through each then gathered up the ends (staggered in length) and tied a knot.

These hang on your door.

For Thanksgiving, lay the pinecones on their sides, glue on googly eyes on the pointed end, stick feathers or leaves in the fat end, and twigs to help your "turkey" stay in one spot.

For Christmas mini-trees, stick the fat end of the cone into a pot or jar or bowl with sand, or plaster or clay to hold the "tree" upright. Then glue mini ornaments, or sequins, buttons, glitter on the bracts.

Make a owl with Large pine cones. Level bottom of the pine cone. I use pieces of feathers for ears on top of Owl. Felt peak, and use Large Craft store plastic eyes.

Take cloths dryer lint and stuff it in the pine cone. It appears as a downy whitish colored owl.
