Objectives:

They're simple and fun to do, so why not make some paper snowflakes this winter?

They make great window decorations, they can be attached to Christmas gifts or you can hang them from your Christmas tree. You could even make snowflake jewelry! All you need to do is spray a protective coating over your finished paper masterpiece.

Note: Real snowflakes only have six points. It can be fun to cut out patterns that have different numbers of points (such as ours, which have eight points) but only the six-pointed flakes can truly be called snowflakes.


What You Need:

  • Square paper or KinderArt snowflake templates.
  • Scissors (and some adult help for the littles).
  • Optional: crayons, paint, glitter or markers to decorate your snowflakes.
