Snow Day

Snow Day

Projects

There is something inherently fun about frozen bits of crystallized water falling from the sky! Every child knows the magic of snow it has the power to suspend school days, it’s the ideal material to build a fort, and it’s perfect for high-speed hill action.  Snow is by far the most versatile precipitation. The intricacy of the snowflake itself makes it perfect for classroom exploration and fun. Keep your students busy all winter long with snow inspired winter crafts to decorate your classroom. Here are some ideas!
 

Make Cotton Ball Snowflakes

Decorate your classroom with floating cotton ball snowflakes!
  • You will need cotton balls, fishing line, craft needles and glue.
  • Thread the cotton balls onto a long piece of fishing line at varied points.
  • Use a dot of glue to keep the cotton ball in place.
  • Hang them from the ceiling or in the doorway to make a snow curtain to walk through.

DIY Puzzle Piece Snowflake

Here’s a great use for all those puzzles that are missing pieces!
  • For each snowflake you will need 6 long, skinny puzzle pieces, white glitter paint, glue, bottle cap (or wooden disc from the craft store), and a piece of ribbon.
  • Use tacky glue to adhere the puzzle pieces onto the bottle cap in a star pattern to create the snowflake shape.
  • Paint the whole thing with the white glitter paint.
  • Glue a loop of ribbon on the back so the snowflake can be hung.

Let it snow! Use these and other ideas to have your students create different types of snowflakes that you can use to decorate your bulletin board! Staple, tack and hang, your winter crafts on the bulletin board all season long!
