This free printable snowflake activity is a super fun and easy winter craft for your preschool classroom. Your kids will be so excited to use a hole punch as they complete the snow-themed activity that they won’t even realize that they are building strength in their little hands.
Why This Snowflake Craft Is a Great Fine Motor Activity
Are you looking for fun ways to help kids build hand strength and improve their fine motor skills?
Kids love playing with hole punches. That’s why hole punch activities are extremely motivating for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
Each time a child uses a hole punch to add holes to paper or craft projects, he or she is building hand strength. Building strength in their hands helps kids as they learn to use scissors or write with pencils.
This free snowflake printable will give your kids to work on scissor skills and use a hole punch. It’s the perfect winter-themed fine motor activity that is perfect for your winter units and lesson plans.
Supplies Needed for the snowflake activity
Here are the supplies that I used to make our simple snowflake craft.
- paper or cardstock in blue, lilac, pink, and white
- hole punches
You may also want to provide some additional supplies like crayons, markers, glitter glue, sequins, gems, etc. to decorate the paper snowflakes.
How to Make the Snowflake Craft
To get started, print the snowflakes. Printing on colored paper always looks nice. But we are talking about snow….so they will look great on white as well. The snowflakes print four per sheet. You can easily cut the paper into quarters and place a pile in your winter fine motor or art center for your kids.
Hole Punch Activity
Decorate the Snowflake
Finally, the fun fine motor activity can become a creative activity. Kids can decorate their snowflakes with crayons, glitter glue, etc.
