One day last week, us Aunts got together for some much-needed sister hang-out time, play time for the cousins, and a little "blog meeting".
We had a snowflake party planned with a bunch of fun little ideas to do with the kids.
I mean, we found these snowflake cups big-time discounted after Christmas, and had to use them somehow, right??
((The babies had fun putting crafting popsicle sticks into one cup, and then one-by-one, putting them back into the other cup...sounds fun to me!))
We set the table with some cotton batting and silver tinsel.
Blue Legos are optional.
A little helper thought it fit in with the blue theme pretty well :)
Snowflake Sensory Play
We already had a batch of fake snow made up. We added into the bag, foam snowflakes, glass gems, and glitter for fun Snowflake themed fine motor and sensory play!
Did you see the post where we shared our Mess-Free Fake Snow?
We made snowflakes with pipe cleaners and beads. This is a great fine motor activity and SO much fun. My kids are always asking to make necklaces and bracelets with beads and pipe cleaners. So, they really loved this one.
Just a side note...This little niece was READY for a party. Check out that fashion she's got going on here. LOVE it :)
Another snowflake craft...
Glue crafting sticks together in a star shape and dip strips of Scotch tape into glitter. Press the tape down onto the sticks. Instant glittery and mess-free snowflake!
We also showed the kids how to fold and cut paper to make snowflakes. They loved cutting triangles and snips into the paper. And especially LOVED opening them up to see the pretty snowflake. They helped us hang the snowflakes and all of the crafts on the window.
There was a little break from the snowflake theme and party mode to take a Super hero break with dish towels for capes.
FUN STUFF! And so cute :)
Snowflake snacks were marshmallows (they were snowballs of course :)
And bugles (Hats!)
Have you done any fun snowflake crafts or activities? We would love to hear about them :)
