Snowflakes from popsicle sticks
Getting ready for Christmas already! In fact this project will be decoration for our Holiday Home Tour which benefits the school. We have 6 homes decorated and the school itself. So if you like home tours buy your tickets here!
On to the snowflakes...This is a multi-stage project and the first step was having the kids construct snowflakes from popsicle sticks..lots of them. I had them use white glue since it allows for them to adjust the design, eventhough it does not dry as fast as hot glue. The fun part has been to see how different the kids approach this concept. In the end there will be K-6th snowflakes, and all grade levels can do this.
After all the snowflakes dried, I spray painted them red. This is step best done by adults. Smaller snowflakes, I painted white and the kids will glitter them for the Christmas Tree.
We just put them up in the high walls of the School lobby and they really add a graphic punch and some kid-art quirkiness. Love them!
