Snowflake Sun Catcher

I googled “Outline Snowflake Pattern” and printed a snowflake template to make beautiful snowflake sun catchers. The children I care for love hanging these sun catchers in the windows of their playroom and bedrooms.

Don’t forget to check out how to make snowflakes using cotton swabs, or coffee filters, or paper and paint with water color, or from crafts sticks on my blog.

I also recommend reading “All the a little Snowflakes,” “The Story of Snow,” “Curious About Snow,” “Snowflakes Fall,”The Snowy Day,” and “Charlie and Lola: Snow is My Favorite and My Best.”

You Will Need:

Construction Paper
Multicolor Tissue Paper
Clear Tape

What to Do:

1. Print out a template of a snowflake. Tape it to a few sheets construction paper and a few sheets of colored tissue paper. If you are making a lot of snowflakes you will have to cut just a few at a time. You g children will need you to cut the shapes for them, while older children can cut out the shapes themselves.

2. Carefully cut out the edge of the snowflake pattern from the construction paper and tissue paper at the same time if possible.

3. Cut out the inside of the construction paper snowflakes so it will be the border of the snowflake.

4. Have the kids dot glue around the border of the snowflake carefully and lay a sheet of tissue paper on the black snowflake.

5. Once dry you can trim any tissue paper sticking outside of the border of the snowflake if you wish.
