Our Paper Snowflake with Pasta is the most simple and creative pasta craft your kids will ever make! Hang your paper snowflakes in your windows or from a tree and you'll be ready to celebrate winter!
🌨 Celebrate Winter with DIY Snowflakes!
My kids are always disappointed when we don't get a ton of snow during the winter. To cheer them up, we made these adorable paper snowflakes with pasta and decorated our house! Simply punch a hole at the top of your snowflake and thread a small piece of yarn through the hole to form a loop. Tie the ends together and your snowflake will be ready to hang!
Notes on supplies:
- Pasta- We used uncooked Acini de Pepe leftover from our Healthy Italian Wedding Soup recipe, but can also easily substitute this pasta for any other small pasta, grain or rice, like orzo, quinoa or couscous.
- Scissors- we love these kid-friendly scissors.
📝 How to Make Easiest Paper Snowflakes with Pasta
Step 1: Cut out 4 even strips of paper*
Step 2: Form your snowflake
Form a "t" with two strips and glue the pair together where it intersects. Form an "x" with the other two strips and glue the pair where it intersects. Lay the "x" on top of the "t" and glue the pairs together where they intersect to form your snowflake.
Step 3: Paint the snowflake with glue
Step 4: Sprinkle glue with small pasta
Be sure to shake off any extra pasta. Once it has dried, feel free to display pro hang up your snowflake!
Note: *For toddlers especially, these tasks may require adult supervision and/or assistance.
