As you've probably heard me lament before, we don't have traditional winters way down here in the South. That means we rarely (and by rarely I mean 'once in a blue moon') see any snowflakes and if there are snowflakes, they never stick together and accumulate on the ground.
So why not make our own snowflakes?
Making paper snowflakes is a fun activity that all school children partake in at one time or another.
This home school teacher wanted to take it to the next level, however.
When I saw THIS VIDEO I knew its what we would be doing!
I thought it might be a little difficult for the kiddos and would require a lot of help on my part, but they surprised me and were able to do most of it on their own.
They were proud of their accomplishment, and I was proud of the pretty decoration it made!
(I found this idea through a link on one of my favorite blogs: The Holy Experience.)
