How to Make a Snowflake – Crafts For Kids!

I was trying to think of a simple kids craft to gussy up our front window, and I thought why not make it super simple with some super cute snowflakes.. right?!?! So… this is how you make a snowflake. Kids addition!

“Hey kids…” I say, “Let’s make snowflakes!” kids come running with excitement! Crafts are laid out nicely, all separated in their own bowls, and organized so each kid has their own supplies to try to avoid fighting… I even got 2 glue bottles one for each child, because the world would end if the other kid has the glue when the other kid needs it, that very second. You want to know what crafts with kids is really like?!?!? Well here you go…

It goes perfectly every time!!! NOT!!!! Ivy lasted longer than Corbin, but still not all that long. She did really enjoy putting the coloured beads on the pipe-cleaners (for like 2 minutes), and she was so cute concentrating while do it. Lol, but what they would really enjoy doing more is… emptying the bead bowls and throwing them all over the floor…

Well that lasted a few minutes!! So, I made some of my own to use up some of the supplies.

 

The next day I thought maybe they would like to use glue to make snowflakes!!! This is how that went…

I think this all happened within 2 minutes of starting each craft! I don’t have photos of the sequins or the beads all over the floor, but believe me… we have sequins everywhere and now they are all over the inside of my washing machine and dryer!

 

But this is the super cute result of the kiddos crafts…

So I hung them up with string in our front window, and that’s our winter window this year. Last year we cut out paper snowflakes and taped them to the front window… I mean I did all the cutting and taping and the kids tried to reach their little fingers up and rip them to shreds. Oh… Kids!!

What other super fun kids winter window ideas do you have? I’d love to see your creations! Until next time, enjoy creating with your kiddos, and creating beautiful things!
