I’m sure much of the country is sick and tired of SNOW…but we haven’t had any so far, so we decided to make our own snowflakes.
When I was teaching first grade, we would make these snowflaks every winter and hang them from the ceiling in my classroom. They were so festive and so much fun to make!
In addition to making some very cute ornaments and gift tags, I knew this would be a great sensory activity for Big Brother!
Here’s what you’ll need: shaving cream, a bottle of glue, glitter, and snowflakes printed on cardstock (or glue onto cardboard) and then cut out. Here is a template I found…you can resize it as necessary.
|1. Put the shaving cream and glue together in a bowl . I don’t have an exact recipe, but I typically do about half and half glue and shaving cream.|
|2. Let your little one mix up the concoction.|
|Big Brother is starting to enjoy new textures…at least for a minute or two. :)|
