Back when my daughter was much younger, we had this tradition of going out in our neighborhood and picking pinecones. I say picking, but actually, we would be picking them up.

We especially liked finding the oversized ones or even wee tiny little ones. After coming home with what seemed like bushels, we would pinecones to decorate our house both indoors and out.
