How To Make Hedgehogs From Pinecones

Autumn brings with it many beautiful colours and gifts from nature for children to enjoy. Collecting pinecones is a timeless fun activity that most children will do without any prompting.

They are such odd looking things and the natural spikes are great to play with. They also make fantastic hedgehogs!

We found this pinecone hedgehogs activity on and thought you would enjoy it…

You will need:

  • pinecones
  • playdough (brown, beige, orange and yellow all work well, you’ll need some black for the nose)
  • googly eyes

All you need is one ball of playdough for the head and four rolls for the legs. Push them on the pinecone and voila! Add a small black playdough ball for the nose and a pair of googly eyes.
