We had a big blizzard in October. It dumped almost a foot of snow at our house. That snow has since melted and now temperatures during the day hover around 50 degrees. Even though the temperature belies that this is wintertime, the calendar says it’s wintertime.
And when it’s wintertime, I love cutting out snowflakes. Here are directions for my heart-shaped snowflakes that you can make with your grandchildren. Or, if they don’t live nearby, you can send them the link so that they can learn how to make them. Here are more directions for cutting snowflakes.
Do you have granddaughters? They might be interested in cutting these ballerina snowflakes. Krokotak has pictures, directions and a template that you can use to create these fun snowflakes. These snowflake ballerinas are meant for ‘little hands’ so fairly young granddaughters should be able to cut them out.
While you are at this site, you might want to poke around a wee bit. Wait! A wee bit? Who am I kidding? You need to poke around a lot. There are LOTS of free great printables here — especially for Christmas.
In fact, I think I’ll save you some time. Here is a list of Christmas themed activities that you can print and make with your grandchildren. They are way cool.
- Paper bells (there’s a non-colored and a colored template to print)
- Enchanted forest
- Santa and angels
- Christmas themed paper dolls (a Santa, a snowman and an angel)
- Paper snowmen (way fun!)
- Christmas star (looks gorgeous)
- Santa craft with a looped beard
- Santa gift tags — grandchildren would have loads of fun making these for to put on their presents to friends and family
Have a party with your grandchildren and make some of these fun paper Christmas crafts.
