Tis the season for snowflake making! My kids are on a cutting spree as they love to use scissors and cutting snowflakes is right up their alley! If your child is learning to use scissors give them a hand and make your snowflakes together. They will love the surprise when you unfold them and uniqueness of each one.
This idea to hang the snowflakes resulted from a window with condensation making our snowflakes kinda soggy when stuck to the window.
Voila – the ribbon idea hangs them in a pretty way and keeps them away from the window pane.
We all know how to make snowflakes – fold any paper in half and half again and then cut out shapes and designs while avoiding the one folded side. If you want to get fancy, here are some neat instructions for the adult snowflake maker. For the kids, let them explore as the fun of making a snowflake is the surprise of what it turns into once opened.
Make lots of snowflakes, try different paper and different colours. We used construction paper, white printer paper, napkins, coffee filters and card stock. The more variety the better!
To hang the snowflakes you will need some ribbon or string. Measure the width of your window and cut the ribbon that length. Then thread your snowflakes along your ribbon (either thru the holes already there or cut small slits and slip the ribbon thru). The tape up the two ends to make a very pretty window display! Pretty, pretty!
