Learn how to help your kids take their paper snowflake designs to the next level with these simple and easy paper snowflake craft ideas.
Cutting snowflakes is one of my favorite winter fine motor activities. In a previous post, I showed you that using cutting templates to make paper snowflakes can increase the success for young children.
No More Snowflake Frustration!!
Now, I want to show you some ideas to take those beautiful paper snowflakes to the next level.
Snowflake Craft Ideas
In addition to your snowflake cutting center, you can set up a snowflake decorating station. Your kids can really get creative.
Here are some supplies that you can include.
- hole punch
- glitter glue
Snowflake Decorating Ideas
After cutting, but before opening a snowflake, kids can use a hole punch to add holes to their snowflake design.
I don’t know what it is about hole punches, but young kids seem to LOVE them. There is a big bonus to hole punches….they are great fine motor tools!
Crayons, Markers, Colored Pencils:
Sequins and Gems:
They can add a variety of sequins and gems with a little bit of glue.
Glitter glue will add a little bit of wintry shimmer to the snowflakes. Helpful Hint – Sometimes glitter glue can be difficult to squeeze out of the little bottles. Cut the tip off so that the opening is slightly larger to help them out.
If you are really brave, you can also use regular glitter. My son and I made these at home, and I wasn’t brave enough to get out the glitter 🙂 #glitterallover
