learning about snowflakes hands on through play dough stamping, snowflake paper crafting, fine motor pipe cleaner beading, kids DIY, kids activity

Are you mesmerized by ️snowflakes? We are! And we could not resist to learn more about these nature’s miracles especially since the snow was falling and Julia was home on a winter break.

Activities you can consider to learn about snowflakes hands-on:
❄️️stamp snowflake design in play dough (we are using DIY wooden double-sided stamps from the Arctic Learning Kit) or use a snowflake cookie cutter (also a part of the Arctic Kit ~ shop here)
❄️️make a paper snowflake craft (from this book)
❄️️make a snowflake from pipe cleaners and pony beads
❄️️make a snowflake from marshmallows and don’t forget the six branches!

We had so much fun reading about the mystical hexagon shape water molecules take form, about the birth of a snowflake and its fleeting life …

Books we are reading:
