Snowflakes, Snowflakes, Everywhere!
I think every child does it. It's like a right of passage or something. Paper, scissors, and a little imagination. What do you get? Paper snowflakes. I decided today was a good day to introduce this magical paper artform to my oldest two children.
I personally have never been much of a paper-snowflake-artist. My snowflaking abilities never really progressed beyond about the 5th grade level. So when I saw these patterns on pinterest, I thought I'd give them a try.
Then, when my oldest got home from school, we sat down to make snowflakes! First, I had to teach the 7 year old how to fold the paper. Of course, since I haven't done this in YEARS, I had forgotten how myself. So I looked it up here. Then we cut. I used some of my patterns. He used his imagination. The 4 year old made confetti.
