Advent activity #23: Paper Snowflake Decorations


We’re letting it go!

So this morning, our Christmas Advent activity was to decorate the front door with paper snowflakes using recycled paper.

We followed these foolproof instructions to make six-pointed snowflakes. J and Little E helped to make the snowflakes and arrange them on the front door.

My original plan was to scatter the snowflakes randomly all over the door, but as you can see, we’ve arranged it such that the little snowflakes are close to the kids, with the bigger snowflakes higher up. This is because Little E wanted to pretend to be like Queen Elsa from Disney’s ‘Frozen’, making the snow appear to rise from the palm of her hand. By the way, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you really should! We watched it again last week and it looks really good in 2D too. You can check out my spoiler-free review here.

P.S. If you’re looking for some last minute Christmas decorations, look here for a bunch of my favourite free printables and craft ideas.

P.P.S. I nearly used these awesome Game of Thrones inspired snowflake templates by Krystal Higgins but they are a little bit too challenging for preschoolers who are still mastering their scissor skills. I particularly like the House of Baratheon snowflake. Ours is the Fury!
