I told you we’d add a little fun to our week. 🙂 Simple fun, that is. We started at snack time with “frosting” our snowflakes. (That is, cream cheese on Ritz — my kids love it!)
Next is an old favorite; cutting snowflakes. The best part is their excitement after cutting. They just can’t wait to open them up to see how they turned out!
I got this from Pinterest, and have been wanting to try it — snowflakes from pine needles. We also added some snow dots with q-tips. Speaking tips, the only tip I have is press hard with the pine needles. Other than that, have fun!
And, last of all… pipe cleaner borax snowflakes. So simple. 1/3 cup borax mixed with 2 cups hot water. Of course, the hardest part is patience. I told the girls they wouldn’t be ready until the next day. However, we checked that night and they were already crystalized. Hooray!
And, that’s about it for snowflakes in December in California!
