I know we’ve been really late in getting this Q-tip snowflakes craft done, but you know with the weekend rush, and I went into cooking overdrive these couple of days, some things just get left undone! Nevertheless, we finally got it done and here’s how to put this simple craft together. You may have noticed that I’ve selected rather simple crafts with minimal or easy-to-get supplies so that most people would be able to join us in doing our advent activities this year 🙂
We started the activity with cutting the Q tips:
After we were done with one snowflake, she had other plans:
And she made a snowflake ‘flower’, complete with stem and leaves.
And then it was just experimenting with how white glue looks like on the blue paper:
And more ideas from her – coating the Q tip with gold glitter glue:
So we dotted the snowflake with gold glitter glue:
I think you’d have realised by now that I usually let her take the lead for each activity. Most times, she has other ideas about how the activity should turn out and it really doesn’t matter whether we get a really nice sheet of paper filled with Q-tip snowflakes. It’s the process that matters and I really love her display of curiosity and creativity each time! 🙂
