Who says snowflakes have to be white? We made some paper snowflakes here today (even though it was 74° outside!) Since my son chose colored paper as well as white, we started calling them Kaleidoflakes.
Making paper snowflakes can be a simple cutting exercise for kids if you help a little with the folding and watch a little with the cutting. To avoid frustration with a pre-schooler, I just folded the paper for my son into the ‘snowflake triangle’ and drew simple shapes for him to cut out (like triangles and half circles). When he opened it up, he was delighted with his results.
To make Kaleidoscope Snowflakes:
A careful cutter face.
I cut the edge with those fancy shape scissors on some of them.
We taped these to the ceiling in our sunroom to look at for a few days. Paper snowflakes are always a fun little project for kids to cut, decorate and display.
