Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
- cotton swabs
- wax paper or plastic wrap
- Arrange cotton swabs into a geometric shape on a piece of wax paper.
- Squeeze a little tacky glue on all the areas where the ends of the swabs meet.
- Shake some glitter glue into each spot where the glue was squeezed.
- Allow the snowflake to dry overnight.
- Carefully remove the snowflake from the wax paper/plastic wrap. (This step needs to be done by an adult or older child.)
- Display your snowflake by hanging in a window, on a bulletin board, etc.
This activity would tie in great with a math lesson on rotational symmetry or a science lesson on weather/precipitation. It would also be a good activity to do on a snowy day along with reading books and singing songs about winter and snow.
Have fun making snowflakes!
