Sparkling Snowflakes

Yesterday was a cold, cold day. Little Annalise needed some Mommy time as we've had a busy couple of days. What better way to enjoy each other's company while staying warm on a cold day than making snowflakes? :)  This website: has a bunch of wonderful winter crafts to do with toddlers. I chose one and we got to work.

construction paper
double-sided tape
tin foil

While I got the paper ready with the tape, Annalise tore up the tin foil (or, as she calls it, Tim Oil). It was a great way to keep her occupied and train her fine motor skills.

You can't see it very well, but there is double-sided tape on the paper. You put the tape down in different snowflake shapes.

Next step - take the little pieces of "Tim Oil" and stick it to the double-sided tape. Annalise had fun with this. She got really into it and pretended the foil was orange juice that she had to poor all over the paper. Then she squished it all onto the tape. Whatever didn't stick, went back into the container for Mommy to use. :)

This is mine. It was fun to do crafts with Annalise. Hopefully more crafts will come soon! :)

    1. No problem! With these cold winter days, I'm thinking crafting is going to become more common! :)
