Remember making snowflakes as a child, and cutting paper in all different ways just hoping to create that perfect snowflake? Like real snowflakes, it was so cool to get a unique and different snowflake each and every time. It’s a fun craft that’s been done for years, and yet, still never gets old.
Since my little girl is home on Mondays from preschool and two of my boys were feeling a little under the weather to go to school on this rainy day, I decided we needed some creative intervention. So, after doing a little google searching for snowflake making tutorials, we grabbed some scissors, paper and gave it a whirl. I remembered how to make a snowflake the way I did as a little girl, but I knew there were prettier and “fancier” ones you could make.
The kids and I followed this DIY and did each step together side-by-side. One of the steps was a little tricky, but for the most part, it was easy-peasy and the snowflakes turned out gorgeous. They were definitely prettier and more delicate looking than the ones I used to make. I loved watching the kids get so excited to unfold their paper after making the cuts and see how awesome their snowflakes turned out. I must admit, even my 14-year-old enjoyed this timeless winter activity. So, with that said, I think it’s safe to say that it’s a crowd pleaser of all ages, for sure!
Do you want to make a snowflake? There are plenty of tutorials out there, but this one is the one we followed that made for stress-free, family fun.
