In January the kids and I enjoyed crafts and fun having mainly to do with a winter theme. We made flourless peanut butter cookies for a playdate, snowflake tortillas, absorbing salt art (using salt, glue and food colorting) and these snowflakes made from coffee filters:
For this craft, we folded the coffee filters in half about 4 times. Then we cut shapes - like you would a regular paper snowflake. Once our snowflakes were cut, the kids colored on them with markers. We placed them on wax paper and the kids spritzed them with water until the colors started to run. Once they were dry they were ready to hang! They look beautiful with the sun shining through. It was a great way to teach the concept that no two snowflakes are the same - they are all as unique and special as all of us!
