Snowflake Crafts for Kids

To re-create these snowflake crafts for kids all you will need is Q-Tips, glue, string and a pair of scissors - yes, it's that easy!

Snowflake Crafts for Kids

If time is a factor when creating this craft, we have found that using a hot glue gun will speed up the drying time.

Of course, with hot glue, adult supervision is necessary.

Using red or green sparkles for the ends of the Q-Tips is also possible, it will stand out more than the silver or white sparkles (like we used).

No two snowflakes are a like, so there is no specific measurements needed for the sizes of your q-tips.

You can also make it three dimensional by placing q-tips all around.

Be creative with these snowflake crafts for kids and make them all different! These are great for Christmas tree ornaments, or a gift for the teacher.
