kid craft monday (snowflakes!)

We do this every year…
and it’s always a huge mess.
one year my son kept cutting gun shapes and went around and shot us…
but this year I thought we could try some patterns…

first: I wanted to show you how I fold my paper to cut snowflakes…. how to fold a snowflake

square looks best so always cut your paper down…and then fold fold fold. The smaller it is the harder it is to cut so make sure you have some sharp scissors!


You could also use a coffee filter. It’s really thin so you can fold it small and it’s easier to cut…plus it already comes round and perfect.

This method is also awesome:

how to cut snowflakes I also like to cut circles –I think the mix of square and circles and sizes make it really fun!

and traced a design…this one is batman….

mickey mouse

and hearts…

Then you let your kids cut

 I noticed that if your kids are smaller..you might not want to fold it up too small…4 times so the scissors can cut through it…
You can also do a fun Name snowflake cut your name into a snowflake Name snowflake-a girl and a glue gun Looks super fun!  snowflake scraps
