Paper Snowflakes




Create a Blizzard's Worth of (Paper) Snowflakes!

Snowflakes are so pretty and easy to make! Kids find the activity of making paper snowflakes a magical one. The beauty of this project is that no flake will ever look the same, just like real snowflakes! Keep them busy during the dead of Winter by simply using paper and sissors. Here's how!

1. Fold the Paper in Half
Start with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half diagonally to make a triangle.

2. Fold into Another Triangle
Now, fold the triangle in half so the pointy corners meet.

3. Fold into Thirds
Fold your triangle into thirds.

4. Fold and Make Adjustments
Fold into the shape as shown. You may need to adjust these folds a little to get the sides to match up, so don't crease the paper until the folds are just right.

5. Cut Across Bottom
Cut across the bottom of your paper so it is straight.

6. Cut Lines into Triangle
Cut the folded paper with variations of straight and curvy lines. Get creative with your snowflake designs by experimenting with different sizes and shapes of cutouts.

7. Unfold Paper
Gently unfold the paper to see your unique snowflake!
