Some of us can go outside right now and look at real, natural snowflakes. Others cannot. No matter where you live, you and your kids can have fun making snowflakes of your own! Your kids will love these snowflake crafts.
When my daughter showed me a picture of these snowflakes, I have to admit, I had my doubts if we could make them look as good as the picture. She was confident she could pull it off and went to it.
They turned out beautiful!

Foam and Glitter Snowflakes
This snowflake craft was easy and the kids love the way it sparkles. Just take a snowflake foam shape, brush it with glue and pour on the glitter. When the glue is dry, shake off the extra glitter. You are done and the snowflake looks awesome.
Puzzle Piece Snowflake
This snowflake project was my son’s idea. We had some puzzles we were getting rid of and he thought the pieces looked like snowflakes. To make them, place the pieces face down in a box to keep them from flying away in the next step. Next, spray them with white spray paint. When they are dry, arrange them in snowflake shapes and glue the pieces together.
I’ve enjoyed making these since I was little. It’s a tried and true method that turns out different every time. The trick is in the folding. This post gives easy to follow paper folding directions and a few patterns to follow to make beautiful paper cut-out snowflakes.
I prefer making the cut-out snowflakes with coffee filters. The filter paper is opaque and delicate, more like real snowflakes than regular paper. In this watercolor snowflake STEAM activity, you can experiment with different dilutions of watercolors and paint techniques.
Try these for yourself. Do you have any other snowflake craft ideas to share?
