Paper Snowflakes

This is an old winter classic that is really better suited to older toddlers, although my daughter really enjoyed helping with the activity. You could involve a young toddler more by having them color the paper before it is cut into snowflakes. Coffee filters also make great snowflakes!

Take a square sheet of paper, and fold in half

Keep folding until it is a thing cone. Cut small tiangles out of the edges and a zig-zag top

Hang on window or wall to enjoy

My motive in making this craft today was actually to keep birds from crashing into our windows. A bird crashed into this window this morning, and I felt so bad. The bird actually recovered (after being stunned for about half an hour) and flew away, so at least we had a happy ending this time.

  1. We love making snowflakes like this! When we made them last year, I let my son tell me where to cut the paper, and then I let him unfold it at the end. He really loved it.
