Recently, I posted a blog (with a free lesson!) that was all about how God makes us unique. We used snowflakes as an example of this. Today, we’re going to go through a couple of different snowflake crafts that you can do along with that lesson in Children’s Church, Sunday School, or Bible class.
Now onto the snowflake crafts!
Coffee Filter Snowflake Crafts
Option number on is the classic.
In this snowflake craft, you will take some coffee filters (which is great because they are so cheap!), and you will fold them in half three times. After that, your students will cut into the snowflakes to make different patterns.
Make sure that they do not cut all the way down the folded edges, or it will break!
When the kids open them up, they will look like snowflakes! I like this, because it makes them have the six parts like snowflakes do, and they are symetrical just like snowflakes.
Don’t have coffee filters? You can do the same thing with paper, you will just want to cut the top to be round.
Want to take it up a notch? Before folding, have kids draw with markers on the coffee filter. Then, have them drop tiny bits of water on it to make the colors spread out. This will work best with an eye dropper.
Let dry, and then cut as normal!
Don’t have coffee filters? You can use paper as well, just round the edges so that it will be circular!
Tissue Paper Snowflakes
Option number two is a bit messy, but so much fun!
You or the kids can use glue to draw the snowflakes on their paper (this works best with a dark colored paper).
Then, have the kids use small pieces of paper or tissue paper to glue onto the snowflake. This will create a fun, mosaic like texture.
Annnd then everyone will go wash their hands because….. that’s messy.
Popsicle Stick Snowflake Crafts
The third option for a snowflake craft is to use popsicle sticks. Each student only need three popsicle sticks. Glue them together in the middle to resemble the shape of a snowflake.
Then, have students decorate their snowflake crafts with whatever they want! markers, pipe cleaners, buttons, glue, leftover pieces of paper from the last craft…. the sky is the limit.
This allows the students to be creative annnnd cleans out your craft drawers!
You can then glue a ribbon to the top, and students can hang it (maybe on a Christmas tree), or you can glue it to a piece of paper to give it a frame.
So those are the three super easy snowflake crafts that you can use along with this lesson.
