Winter Snowflakes
Create a translucent snowflake to decorate windows, use as a Christmas tree ornament, or give as a gift.
Satisfies the child’s need to design something unique.
This project helps develop fine motor skills.
Before You   Start  
You will need white glue, wax paper, glitter and pipe cleaners or string for hanging.
Let’s Begin  
1. Place the wax paper on a table. You can pretrace the design or let children use their imaginations to create their own snowflakes.

2. Help children trace their line with a thick amount of glue.

3. Sprinkle glitter and let set overnight.

4. The snowflake should be dry enough to lift off the wax paper and hang on a string or pipe cleaner to decorate a Christmas tree or hang by a window.
This project is fun and easy and creates a great “take-home” gift around the holidays!
