How to Make a Snowflake!
This is a fun project, that can be educational, too. Shhhhh! Don't mention that! Just have fun!
Some of the items needed are not necessary to make a snowflake. We'll let you know where you can improvise.
|Paper, Construction Paper, Tissue Paper, etc.||To make snowflake :) If you are out of paper in your home, try using a newspaper, wrapping paper, etc.|
|Scissors||Safety scissors are best. You could tare the paper, if you can't find your scissors.|
|Pencil||Not a must have. The pencil is used to draw the lines for the folds. Pen, crayon, chalk, etc., may be used also.|
|Protractor||Not a must have. Good to make the angles precise. Also, fun to learn to use.|
|Plate||Not a must have. Good to make arch nicely. Better to use a plate that does not have ridges.|
Now, go and have some fun! Experiment using different types and sizes of paper! How about fabric, or other materials?
For another touch, try using glue and glitter, crayons, markers, and other such things to color your snowflake! Out of glitter? Look around for other objects to use. What about colored salt? Try some food coloring and some salt. Just a drop should suffice.
Let your imagination guide you to all the fun you can have! Then, display them on your tree, in your window, on your walls, etc. Have a special one? Glue it on cardboard, or put it in a picture frame!
