Easy, shimmery and fun! Materials Popsicle sticks or tongue depressors or both White paint Paintbrush Craft glue Gems, sequins etc. Beads Jingle Bells Cord Scissors Smock Craft tray Shallow container Directions Don your smock. Put your popsicle sticks into your craft tray and a bit of paint into a shallow container. Paint your sticks and allow them to dry overnight. Glue your popsicle sticks together with craft glue. An easy formation is making an “X” and then making another “X” in between, but this is just a starting point. Use your imagination to make your own snowflake formation. Add embellishments such as sequins and gems. Lace beads and jingle bells onto cord, twine etc. (We would suggest doing this in the middle of your length of cord so you could hang up your snowflake.) Glue your cord onto the back of your snowflake and allow it to dry overnight. Top a present with it or hang it on a tree or door knob! Purpose Creating symbols of various seasons. Developing one’s fine motor skills (putting small objects in glue.) Safety Notes Beads, gems and other small objects can be choking hazards. Keep them our of reach from children ages 0-3 or those that tend to put things in their mouths. Be sure to wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect surfaces and clothing. String like materials such as cord can be a strangulation hazard and therefore are not for play and should be used with adult supervision.
