    Snowflakes are so special aren’t they! Or maybe we just think that because live in a place that rarely sees snow!

    Great round up, thanks for including our activity!

      :) Oh, I see snow plenty (wayyyyy too much of it out there at the moment), but making snowflakes for some reason just IS special. It just makes me so happy seeing them, let alone making them!
