Here in New England, we had a light dusting the other night. It made everything look so beautiful especially the trees!
This really is the time of year to start thinking of making some snowflake crafts with the kids.
Here are 3 different snowflake craft activities that the kids might like to try.
The first is made with paper or coffee filters. The second is made with cotton swabs, glitter, and glue. The 3rd snowflake is made with toilet paper rolls and pipe cleaners.
To get the complete list of supplies and directions for each of the 3 snowflakes above, just click on the appropriate link below.

Before or after crafting, the kids might enjoy reading or listening to a story. There are LOTS of great kids' books that have a fun snow theme. Two of my very favorites are shown below. Check for them at your local library. :)
