It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas trees, twinkling lights, Christmas carols and everyone’s favorite: presents! Time to bust out those credit cards and order all of your Christmas presents on Amazon! I know I am not the only one who does all of my shopping from the comfort of my couch. What a glorious thing!
Winter is not everyone’s favorite time of the year however. Especially as we grow up; scraping the ice off your window every morning, driving in the snow, freezing your face off while you go for a run. Being a grownup is not fun! I am looking forward to winter this year though! This year is Bradley’s first year being able to play in the snow! We had the opportunity to go to the family cabin this last weekend and I was so excited to wake up to it snowing Sunday morning! I grabbed Bradley and as we were looking out the window I said it’s snowing!! Seeing it snow for the first time through my sons eyes was so exhilarating!
What is it about tiny humans in snow gear? Why are they so dang cute?! The snow was perfect for snow balls and building a snow man.
I love watching the snow fall and I was so sad to leave the cabin and the snow. So to bring a little snow to us, we made some snowflakes!
We made these last week, but I decided to make them again so I could share with you how we did it.
All you need is coffee filters, paint, scissors, and some cute toddlers to paint for you!
Cute toddlers to paint for me.
Their beautiful work!
Fold, fold, fold and then cut shapes along the folded edge and the top if you want.
Done! You could iron these to get the folds and wrinkles out. I taped the snowflakes to the window. When the sun shines on them the colors are so pretty!
This is such an easy and fun craft to do with your kids!
I hope you enjoy this wonderful time of year and make the best of what we have left of 2016!
