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….
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:
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….
Then you let your kids cut
then we just taped them to the windows…
if you want fun snowflakes patterns….
no clue where i found this one…..
fun cute snowman ones (and a christmas tree)
Perfect for our snow day here in Idaho Falls today! My son will love the batman one and my daughter will just be happy that she gets to cut stuff up:)

My mom taught me to make snowflakes like these 30 years ago…using round COFFEE FILTERS! They’re perfect because they aren’t as thick as paper and are extremely durable. I think of her when I put them up on my windows each year (I use double face tape on one side and just press them onto the glass). They look BEAUTIFUL from the outside (especially if you put electric window candles on the sills). At the end of the season I carefully remove them and place them onto wax paper for the next year. The tape holds up season after season.
That’s so cool! Thanks for the tips!
