Happy Monday! I thought we would start the week off with an easy craft. The weather is finally getting cold here in the south, and some people are seeing real snow today! My son asked to make snowflakes over the weekend, so that is exactly what we did. We could have used a ton of paper for this project, but then I remembered these coffee filters up in our cabinet. I would not be surprised if they have been there for the past 4 years since we don’t even drink coffee. Making snowflakes are a great way to use them up, and I think they are even easier for kids to cut than thicker paper. I gave my son a paper scrap bowl, and he sat for quite awhile just cutting away. Here we go!
Gather your supplies. Super simple, coffee filters and scissors.
Find a cute helper. He could not wait to start!
Here is how you fold the coffee filter.
Basically just keep dividing it into halves. The more cuts you make, the prettier snowflakes you get. Cut anywhere except for the small tip.
And here is it! Super simple, and so much fun for kids!
So make a ton, and decorate your whole house. 🙂
