We made Pipe cleaner snowflakes and used them for stamping. The snowflakes are simple to make and the prints are beautiful. We just love it.
Child safe scissors
To make the snowflake
1. Cut a 12 inch pipe cleaner into 3 pieces of equal size(4 inches). Hold the 3 pieces together and tightly wrap a new pipe cleaner around the middle of the bundle, twisting its ends to secure it. Twist the middle pipe cleaner to form a handle like shape.
2. Straighten out the 3 pipe cleaners to form a six-sided snowflake shape as shown above. We made one stamp with the simple six-sided snowflake and one by adding pipe cleaner to the ends.
3. Cut 2 inch pieces from another pipe cleaner. Twist the pieces on the sides of the snowflake as shown.
4. Pipe cleaner Snowflake ready to stamp.
Dip the snowflakes in paint and stamp!
At the end of the six-sided snowflake prints, we stamped dots using the pencil eraser side
We made the below snowflake prints to go along with the book The Snowy Day: 50th Anniversary Edition
