It’s coming closer to this magical time of the year – Christmas time – time to create winter magic with DIY snowflake craft! Remember cutting these when you were a kid!? I sure do! It had a great “wow” factor when you opened your snowflake to see what it turned out to be. This post will help you to prepare your classroom and home for the Christmas celebration. These snowflake crafts and patterns with free printables will make easy, fun projects for children.
Like it or not, it’s the beginning of winter. Some of us have snow and others don’t. Snowflakes are one of the tiniest miracles and a perfect opportunity to introduce science into your lesson plan. Everyone knows that each snowflake is different, but do you know how they are made? Here are some ideas for your homeschool lesson plan.
We have recently made Frozen Silly Putty and Frozen Snow Paint and I can’t seem to stop! My little boy loves it too! Anyway, I saw some fantastic ‘glue gun snow flake ornaments’ on ‘By Stephanie Lynn’ & knew this would make a wonderful ‘Frozen’ craft that my daughter would go crazy for!
Today, Gracen’s advent calendar pouch included a handful of jigsaw puzzle pieces (from Urban Source) and a handwritten note telling her that they could be used to make a snowflake ornament (I originally found the idea here). She of course was ready to begin the project the very instant she opened it.
This is always a favorite Christmas craft we do at my elementary school! The kids get to make their own dough snowflake ornaments to give to their parents or siblings! Note that after the kids make the dough and shape, you will need to bring it home to bake them.
Here’s one of our favorite winter crafts for kids- creating symmetrical snowflakes! Children will make various snowflakes using common craft materials like cotton swabs and white paper. This snowflake craft would be a great addition to any math lessons on symmetry, patterns, and would be a fun addition to a unit on snowflakes or winter!
While the kids were playing with the snow gak we made, they asked to make snowmen and I scrambled to find some items for them to use in their Snow Gak Sensory Play. If you think these snowmen are cute, you may also get a kick out of the kids making snowmen with hair curlers.
Parchment paper, white craft glue, 15 to 30 pieces of wagon-wheel pasta (mixture of large and small) per ornament, white acrylic paint, paintbrush (with bristles), glitter, adhesive-backed rhinestones, string or ribbon
With all of this snow outside, we have been making our own inside. I'm sure most of you have made borax crystal strings or snowflakes before - but if you have not, it is a fun project for this time of year.
