snowflake art

Make beautiful symmetrical snowflakes to teach your kids about snow, weather and mathematical patterns in nature!
Step 1

Start by creating a tinker tray. Fill the muffin tin with glitter, sequins, buttons, beads, cotton balls or whatever other decorating supplies you have on hand. The more shine and sparkle, the better!

TIP: The muffin tin is to only be used as a tinker tray. It should not be used for baking after completing this project.

Step 2

Using white school glue, draw a snowflake on a sheet of paper.

TIP: Remember that snowflakes are symmetrical, which means that if you folded a snowflake in half, the two sides would be exactly the same. To make your snowflake symmetrical, every time you add a line, curve, or shape on one side of your page, make sure to add the same line, curve, or shape to the other side.

Step 3

Use the decorations in your tinker tray to decorate your snowflake, using more glue as needed to make sure all of your decorations stick. Let the glue completely dry.
