With the great weather this year, it looks like we might not have real snowflakes decorating the lawn. Add a touch of winter to your holidays with this super fun, indoor activity, paper snowflakes!

  • Take a square piece of paper and start by folding it in half so that it makes a triangle.
  • Fold in half again to make a smaller triangle.
  • Next, fold the paper into thirds, so that the left edge of the triangle is now in the middle.
  • Fold the right side of the triangle over the left. It should look like a very narrow triangle with two, smaller triangles pointing out from the bottom.
  • Cut off the bottom part, so that the bottom edge is straight.
  • Now start cutting little pieces from the triangle. Don’t be afraid to cut too much, have fun!

When you are finished cutting you can unfold the paper and enjoy your beautiful paper snowflake. Be creative with different folding and cutting styles to make different types of snowflakes. You can even use glitter to really make your home sparkle!
