HOW TO VIDEO:
Crafting Supplies Needed:
- Colored Popsicle Stick Crafts -for older kids you can also choose to use plain craft sticks and paint them yourself with craft acrylic paint. We used JUMBO size popsicle sticks but regular popsicle sticks work as well, they will just be smaller snowflakes.
- Metallic Markers – we tested these with Crayola Metallic Markers and these fun Metallic markers
- Rhinestone Gem Stickers – we prefer to use the sticker versions as it’s the easier way for younger kids to apply them but any rhinestones/gems will work to add a little sparkle to make pretty snowflakes. For another fun twist you could use small pom poms instead!
- Hot Glue Gun – we prefer to use hot glue verses the bottled white glue because it dries much faster and is sturdier for this particular project. Only adults should use this!
How to Make Craft Stick Snowflakes
1. Add snowflake designs on your popsicle sticks with your metallic marker. Similar to a real snowflake, feel free to use different patterns on your snowflakes!
2. Using your hot glue gun, glue your snowflakes in a snowflake shape. You will use 4 popsicle sticks per snowflake.
3. If desired add a gem to the top of each popsicle stick and one in the middle.
Now that your snowflakes are complete you can use them during some playful learning with young kids or you can add a loop of string or pipe cleaner loop to the back of the snowflake and make them into popsicle stick ornaments. You can hang them on a Christmas tree during the Christmas season or on a window for a festive touch for the winter!
