Winter Craft Project: Snowflake

Materials: snowflake pattern, oak tag paper, pasta of various shapes and sizes, glue, 2 cans of white spray paint.

Directions: Click here to print snowflake patterns. Enlarge snowflake to fit on 8 x 10 oak tag paper. Have students trace and cut a snowflake pattern on oak tag paper. Using assorted pastas (bowtie, macaroni, spiral, ziti, etc.), have students glue in patterns making sure to cover entire snowflake. Let dry. Once students are out of the classroom, spray paint each snowflake completely. TIP: This project should be completed on a Friday so that the spray paint can dry and your room will be cleared of fumes by Monday.
