Have your kids make these beautiful q-tip snowflake ornaments! It's not very hard to make and could be great homemade Christmas gifts for the family. When I did this with a 4 year old, I put the glue down for her and then she could easily stick the q-tips on herself!
- Silver glitter
- Blue paper
- Sparkly silver pipe cleaners
Start by cutting q-tips into short and longer pieces. Put strips of glue on the paper in the shape of a snowflake and have the kids do the longer ones first. I realize now that I should of had them actually touching in the middle! After those ones are laid down, put shorter strips of glue between them.
When the q-tips are drying, take a glue bottle and line each q-tip with glue again, sprinkling glitter on top. Once it is completely dry cut the paper out around the snowflake. Bend a pipe cleaner and tape it in the back to hang it on the tree! Pictures don't do justice - these things twinkle so pretty in the light!
