We are super excited about Christmas but even I can get overloaded with Christmas crafts sometimes. This snowflake is a nice easy winter craft that appeals equally to toddlers as it does to older kids and even adults. I love using corks as painting tools because they are easy for all ages to grab and even though most of us would stamp them using the end they can be rolled in paint too! My daughter liked this but got a wee bit frustrated with the sticky glitter glue. I will tape the snowflake down on the table with painter’s tape next time to help alleviate that.
- Gather your materials. You will need some blue construction paper, scissor, white paint, silver glitter paint or glitter glue and a paper plate.
- Start by folding your paper in 4. Then cut into a snowflake. Open.
- Put paint and glitter into the plate and add corks ( real corks work better for a circle print) .
- Invite your artist and create. Most kids will stamp the corks down but do not correct them if they roll the cork, there is no wrong way to do this.
- Let dry and add to your kid art museum ( aka your fridge) , wall or window!

I love your alphabet crafts. Do you have any good ideas for Chanukkah?
Thanks – my Chanukkah ( I never know which spelling I should use) crafts and book reviews here https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/category/hanukkah

We’ll have to try this one out this weekend – there’s always a good supply of corks around here. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing this idea! My students will certainly enjoy it! LOVE you blog 😀
My little toddler class enjoyed making this last week! I blogged about it and mentioned you at http://ppppizzazz.blogspot.com/2013/01/wintry-fun-for-florida-toddlers.html
Thanks so much for sharing!
Trying this tomorrow with my students who have special needs – but using Champagne corks instead as they have a larger nub to hold onto…excited to give it a try!!

Very pretty. Don’t really want to think about winter crafts yet, but pretty nonetheless!
If you have any tread spools lying around that you don’t mind dipping into paint, try pealing off the label and using the end of the spool to make snowflake prints. Really . . . any size will do and they typically have a nice snowflake template design. Q-tips also work quite well.
