My mom dropped off these packets for making our own snowflakes. They were such fun!

Make Your Own Snowflake Craft


Pipe cleaners


Plastic Spoon

Large Plastic Cup



1. Create your snowflake shape with pipe cleaners. Make sure you trim it so it will “dip” into your container.

2. Attach a piece of wire to one end of the snowflake and wrap the wire around the plastic spoon. Be sure to test that the snowflake will hang down inside the water and can come easily in and out.

3. Make your snowflake mixture by putting 3 Tablespoons Borax into the cup and adding 1 1/2 cups of very hot water into the cup. Mix until the borax is dissolved.

4. Hang your snowflake into the cup and let sit about 6-8 hours. Be sure to check on it a few times to watch the progress and see your snowflake grow!
