Snowflake Art

Are you cold? We are cold. It seems like the whole country is cold right now, even in the South (but especially in the Northeast!). Whether you have snow or not, this week seems like the perfect time for snowflake art.

Folded Paper Snowflakes

Have you tried folded paper snowflakes? They're fun to make because all you need is a piece of paper, a pair of scissors, and your imagination. Take a square piece of paper (you can cut the short side of a piece of printer paper to make it a square) and fold it in half, then in half again. You can fold it in triangles or in rectangles and squares--or even both! Then make cut-outs in the paper. Make sure lots of the cutouts are along the fold, cutting all the layers of paper. When you unfold the paper you will have one-of-a-kind snowflake art! Here's a pretty terrific template you can print out for free. Just fold the square into triangles, cut on all the lines, and you'll be all set.

Popsicle Stick Snowflakes

Another easy one! This craft requires just popsicle sticks (craft sticks, found at craft stores), glue, and glitter or markers. Glue three or four sticks (or more if you want to get really fancy) at the center and decorate. Suddenly, it's snowing!

Beaded Snowflakes

This snowflake art is as fun to make as it is to look at, because putting the beads on the pipe cleaners makes the snowflake appear right before your eyes. Here's a link on how to do this one, but it's not hard. Just cut some pipe cleaners, wind them together, and string on some pretty beads. Blue ones work well, but you can create rainbow snowflakes if you want to.

Stay warm, everyone!
