Snowflake Crafts For Kids

This snowflake craft for kids is perfect for most small kids. This would make a great kindergarten craft and is one of our many snowflake craft ideas for preschoolers.

With adult supervision, I’d even say these tinfoil snowflakes would be great snowflake crafts for toddlers as well.

Supplies Needed To Make Snowflakes

If you’re like me and my kids then you’re always crafting and may already have most of these materials at home. If not, this is a low cost craft which makes it even better!

Materials:

Snowflake kids crafts using dark blue paper, light blue paper, black paper, white glue, and tinfoil.
The materials to make this snowflake art project are very simple.

How To Make This Snowflake Craft

  1. After gathering supplies, invite children to begin tearing off small bits of aluminum foil.
  2. Then begin gluing them down to the yardstick in the shape of a snowflake. Snowflakes have 6 equal sides, so you can sneak in a little science and math lesson as well!
  3. Make smaller snowflakes by dipping their finger into white paint to dot smaller snowflakes all around their large, shiny one.

Notes:

Some kids may wish to begin with a small ball of foil in the middle of their snowflake, especially since all snowflakes begin with a small bit of dust in the middle (more science fun!).

The snowflakes look interesting when the shiny side of the foil is alternated with the dull side. 

How to make a snowflake easy for kids by using blue paper, and using white glue and tinfoil to make a unique snowflake.
Every tinfoil snowflake will look different just like real snowflakes.

Other children may wish to cut out their snowflake, leaving a small border around the outside. Hang and enjoy!
