We just had our first snowfall here and while the rest of my friends have been grumbling and groaning, I have been celebrating our fall snowfall with snow themed activities. Any excuse for me to make snowflakes is a good one.

I love snowflakes. They are so fun to make & since, just like a child, each one is unique, the possibilities are endless.

I wanted to show my 4 year old how to draw snowflakes. She loves patterns, so I thought that she would love drawing them as much as I do.

I was right. She loved making the 8 equal sections all around. She was very excited to learn how to make them because she told me that she tried before at preschool and couldn’t do it. I was excited to be able to teach her.

Last week we made some beautiful bleeding tissue art of our now bare trees. We had so much fun making those lovely trees, that we broke the bleeding tissue out again.

I folded a piece of watercolor paper into quarters & drew a snowflake on each quarter with a Sharpie. I tore up different shades of blue bleeding tissue paper and then set it aside. I used a spray bottle of water to lightly mist the paper and then laid the tissue paper pieces out onto each quarter. Once the sections were covered, I used the spray bottle again and generously sprayed the pieces with the water and then set it aside to let it dry. Once the tissue dried, I removed all of the dried pieces to reveal the bled color.

We also cut our watercolor paper into quarters and made pretty snowflake cards using the same method. These were so much fun to make and came out so pretty that I wanted to keep going.
