Paper Snowflakes

8 Dec

 

I loved making these every year when I was a kid.  Actually, I still enjoy making them!  It’s another cheap, quick craft that you can do with your children, younger children you will need to help them with the scissors though.  It’s also a great way to recycle old newsletters from school, or sheets that didn’t print right in the printer, or whatever paper you have laying around.  You can attach a string to it to hang from the ceiling, or just tape it up on the wall.  I’m going to show you one way to fold, there are other ways to fold to get more points on your snowflake.  Play around with it, get creative.  Remember, no 2 snowflakes are ever the same!

What you need:

Paper
Scissors

How to make them:

Start with a piece of white printer paper.

Fold it in half.

Fold in half again.

Fold diagonally to make a triangle.

Now, I like to cut off that extra paper on the right.

Now, you make cuts to make the snowflake design.

Unfold and see your snowflake!
