Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day

By December 27, 2010

This might not sound like fun if you live in an area hit by snow storms, but then again, you just might be stuck in the house and need something for the kids to do. What better activity to engage in than making some paper snowflakes?

We used to cut out snowflakes when I was in grade school, but most of us ended up with some strange-looking square snowflakes! We just didn't understand how to make cuts to make a more realistically shaped snowflake. Your kids won't have that problem if they use the templates on the Noel Noel Noel Web site. Just print out the templates, have the kids fold the paper, and cut out the snowflakes!  Once they get the hang of it, they can get creative and make up their own designs.

Did you know that there is no such thing as a four or eight-sided snowflake?  There have 6 sides, which means if you want realistic looking cut out snowflakes, you need to know how to fold the paper correctly.  Not sure how?  The High Hopes Web site provides excellent folding instructions and even has a video showing how it's done!
