This pretty wooden
snowflake is a very simple craft, easy enough for a preschooler to make
This child’s craft looks wonderful hanging in
a window. It can also be used as an ornament for the Christmas tree.
All you need is popsicle sticks, glue, and some fake snow. Fake snow
can be bought in craft stores, although it is sometimes only sold
during the winter months.
Glue can be added to a
small cup and a Q-tip can be used for spreading if the child is very
small and has trouble squeezing glue from the larger bottle.
- 4 wooden craft sticks (popsicle sticks),
- Fake snow
- Paper plate
- White pipe cleaner
- Cord or ribbon for hanging
the wooden snowflake by placing a drop of glue in the middle of one of
the popsicle sticks. Place another popsicle stick on top of it
perpendicular, to make a cross.
2. Place a drop of glue on the center of the cross, and lay another
popsicle stick on top of the cross, lying at a 45 degree angle from the
3. Add another drop of glue to the middle of the top stick, and add the
last popsicle stick to finish making the snowflake.
4. Add a thick layer of glue to one whole side of the snowflake. Cover
5. Pour some fake snow onto a paper plate. Have the child place the
snowflake, glue side down, into the snow, then pick it up and turn it
over to allow to dry.
6. If you want a thicker layer of snow, repeat the process by adding
more glue on top of the layer of snow, and dip it again in the snow.
7. When the snowflake is
completely dry, use a pipe cleaner to wrap a loop for hanging, on the
top of one of the sticks. Just wrap the pipe cleaner around the stick a
few times, then form it into a small loop, and finish by wrapping the
rest of the pipe cleaner around the stick once again. You can secure it
with a little glue, but in most cases this is not even necessary since
the snowflake is so light.
8. Add a ribbon or cord
for hanging. The child’s name and year can be written in
marker on the back of the snowflake.
