* White paper
* Optional: A protractor
* Optional: Glitter or glitter glue
* For a card: A piece of colored construction paper and glue
Real snowflakes all have six sides, so the first part of this project involves folding a piece of paper into sixths.
Fold a piece of paper in half.
Fold over one side, then the other, to make two 60 degree folds. You can do this by eye, or you can use a protractor. This is a good exercise in geometry and measuring angles.
Cut off the edges of the paper in an arc - this makes a circle (if you were to unfold the paper).
Cut a lot of the paper away.
Unfold your snowflake carefully.
Optional: Decorate your snowflake with glitter or glitter glue.
Glue your snowflake onto a folded piece of construction paper for a great winter card.
