My five-year old loves to color. Last year she pushed aside her coloring books and dove into my adult coloring books and that is all that she will color now. She spends days working diligently on every small detail of the page that she is working on and does a beautiful job. My daughter’s love for coloring, inspired me to try my hand at making my first coloring page. For a first attempt, it is not perfect, but my little one and I both enjoyed it.

As you all know, we love printmaking. Tin foil prints are great because there is very little set up and they are easy enough for kids of all ages. We have made foil prints many times, but for these snowflake prints, we wanted to use negative space to make our designs. Here’s how!

The other day, I showed my little girl how to cut snowflakes. In the beginning, she had a bit of a hard time snipping through the folded paper, so we switched over to newspaper for our tutorial. We cut a bunch of them in different sizes. You can find directions on how to cut a snowflake here.
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.

A funny thing happened the other day. A group of my friends were talking about the winter & things to do with our kids. We began talking about cutting paper snowflakes. I had said that it had been so long since I had last made one that I was not quite sure if I even remembered how to. This conversation sparked us to all attempt to make snowflakes with some funny results. We were all out of practice & went through sheet after sheet of paper until we finally figured it out. This crafting adventure with the grown ups led to a couple of fun snowflake crafts at home.
