Snowflake Stencils

Snowflake Stencils craft

Create an indoor winter wonderland with snowflakes that shimmer. Children make their own patterns for artwork that is as unique as real snowflakes.

  • 1.

    Look at pictures of snowflake patterns. They are all hexagons (six sides), yet each one is different.

  • 2.

    With Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils, draw a circle the width of your hand on white paper. Design six "arms" on the circle, two each on the top, middle, and bottom, in any shape.

  • 3.

    Cut out your snowflake with Crayola Scissors. If you like, fold the paper two or three times. Cut out shapes from the center. Unfold to see a lace-like pattern.

  • 4.

    Decorate with Crayola Glitter Glue and the colored pencils. Dry overnight.

  • 5.

    Punch a hole at the top of the snowflake. Thread ribbon or yarn through the hole, loop, and knot.

  • 6.

    Draw several different snowflakes. Vary the "arm" shapes and ribbon lengths. Hang snowflakes from the ceiling or in windows.
