Sparkly Silver Snowflake

This craft looks great, doesn't take much prep time, children enjoy doing it and Parents love it! Even had a few parents say they are excited to put it on their tree :) The inspiration to do this project with the adventurers can be found here.

What you need:
* 6 silver pipe cleaners cut in half
*clear tri-beads
*clear snowflake beads
*fish line

I put the beads into the tray and 
made the snowflakes before class started. 

To make the snowflake cut the 6 pipe cleaners in half. Wrap 1 pipe cleaner around the 11 pieces directly in the middle. Once it is tight pull away each pipe cleaner piece to go in the direction that looks best. (Sounds a little weird but makes sense once you make one.)

This activity was great to practice fine motor skills. We also discovered that the beads on the snowflake makes a cool sound when dropped.

When everyone was done playing I attached fish line to 
make it a hanging ornament.

A cute book about a snowflake trying to find out what makes her special. She finds out that she is a sparkly snowflake that makes the snow glisten.

Dude, those are fancy! I love them. I think a whole tree full of them would be cute.

Love that! Such great fine motor practice for the kids! I included this in a roundup with a bunch of other homemade ornaments that kids can make. Great idea!
