Well, it is wonderful to be here, whilst the lovely Jamie cuddles her new baby. Thank you for letting me visit Jamie!
I would love to share this preschooler friendly Snowflake. It is so simple and easy, that they won’t want to stop making them. I find it is a very simple, but effective craft! My three year old adored doing these (though needed a tiny bit of help). He wouldn’t stop!
Materials to make cotton bud snowflakes:
- Cotton wool buds (we had the blue ones), or Q-Tips
- Bluetack (am sure play dough would work well, but then you cannot stick them on windows)
- A cute variation, is to also thread some beads onto the sticks.
How to make cotton bud snowflakes:
- Cut 3 buds in half.
- Make a small blue tack ball.
- Arrange 6 halves of cotton wool buds to make snowflake shape (Experiment: I am sure you could do 8 – with 4 smaller ones and 4 larger ones alternating, that would look lovely)
- Stick straight onto window with the blue tack
