While on vacation, my family took advantage of their winter activities which included this cute snowflake ornament made of pipe cleaners and beads.
Snowflake for Kids
To start this easy craft, take 3 pipe cleaners and twist them together in the middle then separate the end out to look like a 6 point snowflake. I had to twist it together for the kids before they added the beads to each end. This is a great eye hand coordination activity for the kiddos. My toddler was very focused on adding the beads.
When you get close to the end, you will want to hot glue or super glue the last bead on the end so the beads don’t fall off. On one end, tie a ribbon so you can hang it on the tree.
Viola the snowflake is completed. It is an easy and fun activity for all ages. For a complete diy video, check out Crouton Crafts’s YouTube channel here.
For older kids, I recommend making it more challenging by following a pattern to transform this activity into a coding exercise.
