My friend Andrea invited me and the kids over for a Snowflake Party yesterday. Since my little boy is still sharpening his scissor skills we did some practice snowflakes the day before. I found a bunch of great ideas to share about snowflakes and how to make some really fun designs.
We made a great big mess (standard with any of our little projects) both at our house and at Andrea's. Bonus: a snowflake party makes its own confetti too! Add some hot chocolate and you are in for quite the treat. It was so fun-thanks Andrea for the great idea and all the fun! Also, in all this snowflake making I made some fun SNOWBALLS! Look for a tutorial coming soon!
Have you wondered about how snowflakes are made? Here are some fast facts.
This snowflake curtain makes a perfect backdrop for your winter wonderland! There are paper snowflakes for kids. And then there are paper snowflakes for adults. I've included links both so that everyone gets to have fun :)

We had fun creating colorful paper snowflakes by using double-sided scrapbook paper. It is a fun twist on the traditional white ones. Here are some patterns for the kids to get you started. And a VIDEO tutorial.
