Colorful Snowflake

10 months ago

Ever since I was a child and as long as I can remember, during the week before we were released for winter break, my teachers would have use do all sorts of projects. I remember sewing our own stockings and baking cupcakes and sorts.
Well I can tell you this tradition hasn`t stop with the newer generations. Every year before Christmas, my kids would come home with homemade trinkets of all sorts. I remember them making snow globes, stockings made of paper, chains that you make by gluing an assortment of colorful construction paper rings together, handprints and regular cut outs of snowflakes.
Well this is the first time my child has come home with this big and this colorful of a snowflake. It`s about a little over a foot wide and a little over a foot long. It`s not those ordinary snowflakes where you fold and just cut out pieces of paper and then reopen to find yourself with a snowflake. This one they did was done with squares of colorful construction paper. And the colors are up to you. They somehow cut out a pattern on each piece and bend the paper to form the shape you see in each section and glue or staple the edges together. Then they combine 6 of them to form this huge snowflake. I think you could make smaller ones, as small as 2 inches in length and width or maybe even smaller, but that`s gonna take more work and concentration. But the outcome will look so pretty.
I still have this snowflake on top of their bookshelf.
I can`t wait to see what they come out with next winter.
