Paper Snowflakes

Who doesn’t remember making paper snowflakes to decorate your home as a kid? It was such fun to see how each snowflake turned out depending on the shapes you cut out of it and how you folded the paper to start with.

Kids can add bling to their snowflakes by using a little glue and glitter. Mom can talk about how snowflakes are formed, how cold does it have to be for snow, where are you most likely to find snow and at what times of the year, and weather patterns, just to name a few lesson ideas.

You can finish out the lesson by making snow cream if you are in an area that gets snow, or go out for snow cones if you are not!
