Simple Q Tip Snowflake Craft Kids Will Love

All you need to make these snowflakes with your kids are things you already have in the house: q-tips, glue, string and a pair of scissors.

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.

If you want, use colored sparkles for the ends of the Q-Tips: try red and green, or blue and silver, or whichever colors your kids love best! Colored snowflakes 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.

With just a few Q-tips, sparkles and glue we will create beautiful snowflakes for the Christmas tree, or just decorations around the house.

Step #4: Using the white string, wrap it around all the corners of your snowflake, until the center is covered.

Before starting to weave it around, make sure to leave a length of string. Do the same thing at the end.
