Puzzle Piece Snowflake

Here is the craft I made last night with my evening storytime kids.  They LOVED it.  Especially when I mentioned we would be adding some glitter to our projects.  Glitter just makes everything better.

What you need:
  • Cardstock
  • Snowflake template (I found one online)
  • Blue and white puzzle pieces (or you can have the kids paint them)
  • Liquid glue
  • Glitter
  • Hole punch
  • Fishing line

I cut out all the snowflakes ahead of time and double layered the cardstock to make it sturdy.  If I had thicker cardstock on hand, I would have just used that instead.   Punch a hole in the snowflake and tie some fishing line onto it.  To keep things a little on the cleaner side, I put swirls of glue on the snowflake for the kids to cover with puzzle pieces and added the swirls of glue on top of the puzzle pieces for the glitter.  This kept the mess to a minimum.
The kids had a blast making this craft and were very exited to learn that they did not have to put all the puzzle pieces together!
