Pinecone Projects!!!

This time of year there are MANY people with an abundance of PineCones!  Get out your crafting leftovers and scraps and throw some of these EASY PineCone projects together.  Use your imagination and have fun.  You can even get the kids in on this.

If your not lucky enough to have any pinecones laying around your yard, you can always pick some up at the dollar tree or other type of similar store.  Or if your looking for a free version but don’t have a park nearby to walk be sure to check out FreeCycle.org.   Post on there, that your looking for PineCones.  You’d be surprised how many people are willing to give them away.

Here are some crafty PINECONE ideas I’ve collected from around the net:

An Alternative To Allowance

Each month we provide our children with a reward for doing a great job in school and for chores.  Sometimes the amount we give doesn’t add up to the amount of effort they have done and we get stuck in this cycle of guilt.  My son used to get $20 a month which equals out to $5 a week.  It todays world, $20 won’t go far.  What if I told you that for the same $20 you could give your children $45 or more dollars worth of product?  Interested yet?

There is a company called Loot Crate  that will send your child a package in the mail every month full of all kinds of awesomeness!   It is geared towards kids who are geek’s or gamer’s. You never know what your going to get until it arrives.  Then kids go crazy over it!  You can find them “unveiling” or “unboxing” their crates on YouTube they are so excited to show it off!   ALSO, as a perk, each month one lucky crate recipient will get a MEGA CRATE, valued at over $2000!  

I wouldn’t be MONEYMAMMA without a better deal than I’ve already told you about!  Right?  So, for my fans I’ve found a code that will give you $3 off your first Loot Crate!  Be sure to click the blue link then when your signing up use the coupon code of 100
