Directions for Twig Snowflake Craft for Kids

1. Take three twigs or sticks about the same length (you might need to break them so they’re the same length) and thickness and glue them together in a snowflake shape with your hot glue gun. (An adult should do this step for younger children.)

 

2. Cover your work station so kids have the freedom to create their snowflakes without worrying about making a mess. I like to use drop cloths since they can be reused for other art projects, but you could also cover your table with newspaper or butcher paper.

 

3. Paint the twig snowflakes with white tempera or acrylic paint. Let dry. (Tempera paint will dry more quickly than the acrylic paint.)

4. Place the glue and tissue paper squares out where the children can access them easily.

 

5. Show kids how to crumple the tissue paper squares and glue them onto the twigs. Encourage them to glue as many crumpled tissue paper squares onto their stick snowflakes as they’d like.
