So here it is a day late. I would like to say that I like making paper snowflakes for the kids, but the truth of the matter is...I have so much fun doing it myself. This is looking out my office window into the health room where the kids can rest when they have a tummy ache. I like to brighten up the space when I can. I usually put my paper Chrismas tree up under the star on the bulletin board, but I didn't get any help from the kids this year. I did get help with the snowflakes though.
Glenda is a regular visitor to the Health Room so she lent a hand... We used coffee filters for this one, it's a little easier showing you how to fold it (that's the trick on making good snowflakes). Fold in half...
Then half again...
Then fold one side to the center...
and then the other side to the center...
Paper snowflakes are just the best. I love making my own decorations. Great project and lovely work!ReplyDelete
wow love these and always looking for fun crafts to do with JReplyDelete
I totally forgot about this! thanks for the fond memoryReplyDelete
Great way to make decorations, the shop bought ones are so expensive. DianeReplyDelete
Love this hand making own decorations, sound so economic and fun!ReplyDelete
Wow, I've never made those. I'll have to try that. What Fun!ReplyDelete
You have given me the snowflake bug. I now have nine of them on my office window - I am hooked! I love how you have done them with the kids at school and how they love them too. A great choice.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the "how to"....my daughter and I shall now make some!ReplyDelete

Perfecting Pru - thanks Pru, I'm glad you had as much fun as I did. They even have a website that you can virtually make paper snowflakes. You can keep them or just keep on virtually cutting and trying more!
