How to: Snowflakes


Every year in December we print out a slew of snowflakes from The Quack Shack and sit around the kitchen table, all of us snipping away while Mr. O reads to us. Just click on the links, scroll to each snowflake, click on the thumbnail and print. Then fold them on the lines in the order labeled. Before you know it, you'll have your own blizzard.

And then we sip our own home-brewed Hot Chocolate (which is really Alton Brown's recipe with a few tweaks - the addition of Sucanat being one).

Do you snowflake? If you do, please leave a link in the comments.

When I was five years old I tried and tried and simply could NOT get it. I, um, haven't tried since.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I have issues.

I may just be brave and click that link though...

Ooh! I'm excited to try the link (when I'm at my computer). Last year we invited ourselves over to a friend's house so they could teach us how to make better snowflakes. There is a tricky way to folding that gives you more detail. The other tip is to cut away as much paper as possible... and use sharp scissors and thin paper.

There are patterns on these that makes it super easy to do. My 11 year old is trying to make a blizzard to hang from strings on her ceiling. Then I think we ought to paint them with woolite and shine a black light on them (so they'll glow in the dark). I get a little carried away sometimes.

Who knew? The only snowflakes I can come close to doing is the old fashioned way. A blank piece of paper folded and then trying not to cut my fingers off and I work the scissors
