Snowflake Craft


It’s bitter cold out today. So instead of my girls going outside to play in the snow, we brought the snow inside, so to speak. While we didn’t actually bring snow inside to play with (though we have before and put it in our freezer), today we did a snowflake craft. Not the same as catching them on your tongue, but still just as fun.


Since I wasn’t planning on doing a snowflake craft today, I was thrilled when I looked in my seasonal arts and crafts book and discovered a snowflake craft that involved using coffee filters. I love crafts I can do with items I have around the house already!

Here’s What We Used to Make Our Snowflakes:

  • Coffee filters
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Glitter

Here’s How We Made Our Snowflakes:

1. Fold the coffee filter in half, then in half again and in half a third time so it’s in the shape of a piece of pie.


2. Cut out different shapes around the folded edges of the coffee filter.

Since every snowflake is unique, this is where kids can get creative in how they make their snowflake!


3. Unfold the coffee filter to see how cool the snowflake looks.

4. Drizzle glue where you want glitter to stick to the snowflake.

5. Sprinkle glitter on the snowflake.

6. Let the glue dry so the glitter sticks to the snowflake.

Now you have unique, sparkly snowflakes to decorate your warm home on a cold winter’s day!

    You know I have never made snowflakes with Jackson - which is crazy cause I loved to do it as a kid. Thanks for the reminder about this timeless craft! :)
