How fun! I might have to steal that idea! My nieces will need fun projects on Christmas!


What a cutie. That looks like a very fun project for a little one.


Too cute! For a more digital version of cutting out snowflakes, have you ever seen http://snowflakes.lookandfeel.com/ ? Totally addictive.


Who would have known- a coffee filter.... I won't look at a filter the same again! I LOVE crafy people!


If you fold your snowflakes back up and dip the corner (center) into some water dyed with food colouring for a few seconds and then set them aside for a while, you'll come back to find the colour has traveled outward toward the edges, graded from light to dark. You can dip each one into different colours after allowing the first colour to travel for a few minutes first, ending up with varigated snowflakes. Experiment with length of time to dip and drying times between colours to get the results you want. I haven't done this in years and I don't remember the best way to do it.


I use the "snowflake" activity in my elementary classroom as a math activity for teaching about symmetry. It's a fun activity for all ages and a great activity for those who homeschool.


What a neat project, thanks for posting the links. This is exactly what we needed to get busy today. :)
