These are the only kind of snowflakes I want to have this time of year. I could tell you that I’m dreaming of snowflakes tenderly falling to the ground blanketing the world in white wonder, but the truth is I hate the cold and am glad I can wear my t-shirt today. The grass is still green, the wind is blowing, but it’s not chilly. The sun peeks its head out every now and then but otherwise it’s lovely. But whether you’re shut in because of blizzard conditions or wish you could see real snowflakes in your window, do this craft with the kids and I promise you’ll have a good time!
All you’ll need is a newspaper, a ruler, a pencil, scissors, and string or ribbon.
With your ruler measure out a perfect square (mine was 6″ by 6″) and cut it out. Find some interesting pages of your newspaper, maybe with bright colors or an interesting picture. Fold your square in half down the diagonal so it makes a triangle. Do that two more times. Then cut out interesting shapes along one of the open edges and along the folded edge. Open and enjoy your snowflake!
Hang your snowflakes on a ribbon or string in a window or on a wall and as you do remind your kids (and yourself) that just like each snowflake is unique and no two are the same, so God made you unique and special.
