Toddler, Pre-K, KKids of any age can have fun with this simple cold weather craft.
To make this craft you will need:
- 4 Popsicle sticks
- White Paint (optional)
- Glitter (or you can use Kosher Salt like I did--optional)
- Stapler or tape
Glue your sticks in place and let dry. Your kids will have to find other ways to occupy themselves until the glue is completely set.
Now, I combine painting and "accessorizing" in one step. I let the kids paint their snowflakes white and while the paint was still wet we shook Kosher salt all over them. I am not a huge fan of glitter since it makes such a mess--but the truth is--I just didn't have any at the time. And, now that they are dry I love the "crystallized" look the salt gave them!
Shake off the excess glitter or salt and let try again. I stapled a ribbon to the back of my kids snowflakes and hung them in the window. You can tape the ribbon or string as well.
