Every christmas time we make paper cutting snowflakes, and whenever possible we make it coincide with a snowfall, last year in the tropics that was obviously not possible. We have had snow for the past three days, yet no accumulation to speak of. This morning the children put on their snow suits and went hunting for ice cycles, something that always fascinates them...
Once back inside we made hot chocolate, that is Kaleena made hot chocolate and Keenan made whipped cream while I started the fire
And then we set about making our snowflakes. Kaleena absolutely loves to make these, from the folding to the cutting and the excitement of unfolding them to find each time a completely unique design.
Throughout winter we will make many of these which we then stick to our windows with sugar water.
(some sugar and a bit of boiling water to dissolve it)
Even Keenan gets involved, although the thickness of the paper is difficult for him to cut through, so he ends up simply cutting into it without cutting out pieces.
~wishing you a wonderful day~
