This is a fun winter craft to do with kid’s ages preschool and up. My kids (ages 3 and 4 years old) love to paint, so they enjoyed this craft. It’s also a fun craft to do by yourself.
What you will need for one snowflake:
8 clothes pins
White paint with paint brushes
Glitter or glitter glue (your choice of color)
Paper (to protect your table)
Simple medium suction cup
Take clothes pins apart (remove the metal spring)
Glue the clothes pins “back to back”
Place paper on table and paint all sides of the clothes pin then let dry on wax paper. If you use plain paper, the paper will stick to the wet paint. Wax paper will not stick.
Once the paint is dry, place a drop of glue on the top corner of the head of a clothes pin then press another clothes pin head into the glue. Refer to photo for guidance.
Once 4 clothes pins are glued together, glue the remainder 4 in each corner. Refer to photo for guidance.
When all 8 clothes pins are glued together, then go ahead and have fun with the glitter!
Take the suction cup (remove the metal hook) and glue it to the middle of the back of the snowflake.
Turn over the snowflake.
And ta-dah! All done and ready for your wintery window. I love this because where we live we have to drive an hour or more if we want to see snow. We only get good snow about once every other year or so. So this decoration helps us see past our wet, rainy winter “wonderland”. I hope you enjoy this fun winter time craft.
A little about Tiffany:
Hello! I'm Tiffany Angell. I've been blogging a little over 3 months and I'm really enjoying it. I just celebrated my 5 year wedding anniversary with the love of my life. We have 3 beautiful kids, Michael (4), Emily (3) and Sam (1). Being a 28 year old stay at home mom of 3 young kids, I don't have a lot of down time to write. But I've always enjoyed writing (even though I may not be very good at it). I write mostly about life. I enjoy God, my family and the company of good friends.
