Instead of snowflakes, we made shapes. All you need is glitter, glue, Q-Tips and wax paper. Make geometric shapes using the Q-Tips. Do this on top of the wax paper. Use generous amounts of glue to hold the cotton portions of the Q-Tips together. Sprinkle with generous amounts of glitter. Let dry--this took all night for us, which tells you how much glue we used! Peel the shapes off of the wax paper (peel them from the glue, not the Q-Tip so that they don't break). Hang from yarn or fishing wire and enjoy.
These turned out so glittery and pretty, and I love that they helped Miss O memorize her shapes. This was also a very cognitive activity for Little Bean because he had to figure out how to construct the different shapes (Miss O couldn't do it on her own). Add in gobs of glue and handfuls of glitter and you have a project every kid will love!
