Easy Large Snowflake Craft To Make With Your Grandkids

Welcome to day four of the 12 Days of Christmas 2018 event! I hope you've been enjoying it so far and finding loads of holiday inspiration along the way. Today's theme is Kid's Christmas Craft Ideas and I'm sharing an easy snowflake craft to make with your grandkids ages 5 and up.

Everything you need can be found at the dollar store so they are an inexpensive craft idea and they take less than an hour to make! How fun that the grandkids can take them home to hang in their room.

For this project you will need:

Easy Snowflake Craft With Large Wooden Snowflakes

Step 1 - Paint the snowflakes

Paint the snowflakes with acrylic craft paint. I painted mine a warm white but silver or any holiday color would be pretty too. You'll probably need two coats but thankfully the paint dries super quick so you can move onto the next step fairly quick. Good time for a milk and cookie break while the paint dries.

Tip: Hang them to dry on a wooden dowel like I did or from the knobs on your kitchen cupboards or interior doors. Whatever works, right! 

Easy Snowflake Craft With Glitter Paint

Step 2 - Add some sparkle

Paint over the snowflakes with glitter paint. Just one coat is all you need. I painted three with gold glitter and the other three with silver.

Step 3 - Embellish the snowflakes

Once the glitter is dry (it dries unbelievably quick) decorate the snowflakes with silver gems, miniature mirrors, or whatever you like. The quickest way to attach them is with a hot glue gun but if your grandchildren are young, a safer route is with white craft glue.

Easy Snowflake Craft Materials And Cording

Step 4 - Add some ribbon or string

Loop some thin ribbon or string through the hanger and you're done! I used a stretchy silver cording that I've had for over forty years leftover from making coffee tin Christmas card holders (remember those?) with my grandfather.

Here's a close up of each of my snowflakes...
