Add some wintery shimmer to your classroom décor with these easy-to-make snowflakes!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 2nd grade / 3 - 7 years

You will need:


  1. Print out a copy of the snowflake template and reproduce it onto sturdy white construction paper—one snowflake for each student.
  2. Have students cut out the snowflakes.
  3. Help students spread out recycled newspaper onto desks or tables to protect their work surface.
  4. Then pour glue into small bowls. Encourage students to dip their paintbrushes in the glue and coat their snowflakes with a thin layer of glue.
  5. Have students select desired colors of glitter, and help them shake the glitter onto their snowflakes.
  6. Allow the glue to dry, and shake the excess glitter from the snowflakes.
  7. Set the snowflakes aside to dry completely. Then flip them over and have students repeat the process on the other side so that both sides of the snowflakes are decorated.
  8. Finally, after both sides are dry, punch a hole in the top of each snowflake and thread a length of string through each hole. Hang the snowflakes from your classroom ceiling to create a winter wonderland!
