A different type of cone which has many differences that can be discussed to the more recognisable ‘Corsican’ or ‘Scots pine’ cones that you usually find. A tightly curled cone (5-8cm) which can, again, either be used in discussion, crafting, mark making or ‘make & do’ activities.
Supervision of younger children is advised when playing with this item.
