Make some snowflakes Craft with your kids to hang through your home during the winter months.
Does it snow in your area? Make snowflakes with your kids to represent those lovely little white flakes. Our kids enjoyed making these snowflakes as it’s snowed much in our area lately. Our newly turned 10 year old loved making them last year & enjoyed making them again this year. It was a delight to our newly turned 8 year old since she’s never tried making them before. Even our newly turned 6 year old wanted to make some, he got to drawing and cutting the shapes but decided he didn’t want to go further:)
These snowflakes are all shaped rounded. To be honest, that’s a craft I learned to make when I was younger but have forgotten how to do them in various designs. We simply went with rounded for now. In fact, some of them probably don’t look much like snowflakes but we still love how they look overall. It’s so cool how each real snowflake has it’s own unique design, too!
Note: I did however looked up how to make snowflakes online but we didn’t get around to trying them. But you can always do a Google search for more snowflake designs if you are not sure.
Snowflake Craft for Kids
- A White sheet of printer paper
- Shape cut outs (we used bowls & cookie cutters)
- Draw shapes on paper using cutters
- Cut out each shape
- Fold each shape into into half
- Then fold again into another half.
- Continue folding to halves, making the final outcome into 3 or 4 halves (what may look like a triangle in the end).
- Take your scissors and cut out tiny triangular shapes in the paper.
- Unfold the paper to reveal the snowflakes.
- You can also use snowflake cookie cutters to shape the designs and then hang them just like that without cutting.
- Once you’re done making snow flakes, you can hang them two ways. Add glitter to decorate if you’d like.
- First, you can use small pieces of tape to stick them to a wall or window.
- Or you can make a hanging string banner out of them by threading them through a string then hang vertically or horizontally.
We chose to attach ours to the windows in our dining room using tape. I’ve kept these set of lights up here & switched out our Christmas wreath for a winter wreath so when it snows, we could have a warm glow. It’s lovely & cozy!
8 year old Queen Elsa decided she wanted to make some snow, too:) It was actually snowing in some of these images. My windows are clean – that’s actually snowflakes you see on them.
