Hanging decorations are fun and easy to make.

It is that time of year again, full of tinsel, glue and glitter! So if you feel your home is still looking a little bare why not make a hanging paper snowflake decoration. It would be a great holiday activity. This is what you’ll need:

  • glitter
  • shiny Christmas ribbon
  • glue
  • scissors
  • white paper

Here’s how to make your hanging snowflake decoration:

  1. cut your white paper into circles – they can be varied sizes or the same
  2. keep folding your circles in half (3 times will work)
  3. cut off each corner
  4. cut triangular shapes off the sides
  5. open up paper snowflake
  6. decorate with glitter
  7. tape shiny ribbon to each snowflake and join together into one dangly decoration!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Tip: You can scrape the blade of scissors along ribbon to make it curl

Adult supervision: adults should curl the ribbon and may need to help with cutting the shapes out of the folded circles
