Snowflake Decorating Ideas

Hole Punch:

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!

Glitter 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
