DIY Snowflakes Take 2

My first attempt at snowflake crafting was both beautiful and a bust with my kid: too much yarn wrapping and not enough pizazz for a 4-year-old’s attention span. So, in a mission to win her over again, we retried snowflakes but this time it was right up my kid’s alley. Glue and a bead free-for-all is pretty much all it took for my little girl to come running.

We painted the sticks to become winter white and glued them into a snowflake shape. When the sticks were dry, we brushed on the glue and placed beads, pearls, crystals, more beads and even white sprinkles to embellish those sticks into snowflakes.

Once again, the simplest, most creative craft wins with my kid again!

Now for the instructions…
