Craft Stick Snowflake

This cool project would be an ideal introduction to symmetry, while the finished item could work as a handy visual aid for learning about weather systems and snow

Adult Supervision Needed

How to Make

  1. Take four blue sticks and make two crosses from each pair, securing each cross at the centre point where the two sticks meet, using Glue Dots or PVA glue.
  2. Using the picture as a guide, place one cross onto a flat surface and arrange the other cross on top, turning it around so that the arms fill the gaps in the first cross. Secure together with Glue Dots or PVA at the centrepoint. This will form your main snowflake shape.
  3. Decorate the snowflakes with a symmetrical design, using mini pom poms, silver sequins and PicTixx 3D Glitter Pens. Follow the picture if necessary, or create your own design. Leave the Pictixx pen details until last, so you can see what space you have left along each stick.

Top Tip

You could add a loop of ribbon to the reverse of one of the sticks to turn it into a tree or window decoration.
