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!
