Making snowflakes isn’t a new craft. I love to try different ways of doing traditional activities. When I was young my mom and I would make snowflakes like this. So I had to do this with my son.
You will just need paper, hole punch, and scissors.
Fold the paper into a triangle.
Give your child the hole punch and the triangles. Just let them punch away.
You will need to make sure that you don’t fold the paper too much or you may encounter this…
Cole made random punches on the first snowflake, but as he started the second one I asked if he could use the hole punch to make a hole that was a line. He looked at me funny for a second, then you could see the light bulb go off. He really got into making clusters and lines.
The end result was a window full of beautiful snowflakes. Now I have passed down this activity to the next generation and I guess we have a new tradition in our house.
