How to make Paper snowflakes for kids

Labels: ,

Grace your panes with paper snowflakes, attaching them with poster putty. Or make a wreath of snowflakes by sticking them one at a time to a wall with poster putty. Kids can happily occupy themselves cutting out dozens of paper snowflakes.
What You Need:
Square paper or KinderArt snowflake templates.
Scissors (and some adult help for the littles).
Optional: crayons, paint, glitter or markers to decorate your snowflakes.

Find the center of the paper on the fold, then fold the paper into thirds in a triangle shape. This involves folding one side over about 1/3 of the way and then folding the other side over to cover the first side.
Imagine the triangle in thirds, and fold the right third over. If you want to be precise and have a protractor, each "third" in this step is a 30 degree angle.
For this craft I placed a paper snowflake over a piece of cardstock and colored in all of the holes, which is similar to using a stencil. When I removed the snowflake I colored the rest of the surface with a black colored pencil. I am going to fold this piece of cardstock in half to make a fun card.
