Pine Cone Cup and Ball Game Craft

Here's another great nature idea that came out of my daughter's Japanese elementary school textbook. You can make an easy cup and ball game with a pine cone, a cup, and some string.


  • paper cup
  • pine cone
  • yarn or string
  • a sharp pencil or push pin


  1. Take a length of yarn and tie it around the center of a pine cone.
  2. Take a sharp pencil or push pin and make a hole one the side of the paper cup near the top.
  3. Tie the other end of the yarn through the hole in the cup. If desired, decorate the cup. To substitute for a paper cup, use the bottom third of a milk carton.

How to Play:

Hold the cup and swing the pine cone up and try to catch it in the cup.
