After hearing about the request for snowflakes in Newtown, Connecticut for the kids when they return to school, we decided we wanted to help. We have made all kinds of snow flakes for the kids there. We just wanted to be able to do something. It is such a heartbreaking tragedy.
My daughter showed me how to make this great snowflake that is a little different then the typical one and I thought I would share how to do it.
- Fold paper in half so there is extra on the top and side.
- Cut the extra off.
- Fold into another triangle.
- Cut strips, but not all the way through.
- Open up paper
- Bring center together and staple or tape 7. Flip over and take next two strips and staple, do this until you have all strips stapled. 8. Make 6 and staple them together in the center.
Once you have them all together you have your beautiful 3d snow flake. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!!
It has been a challenging beginning of fall for many here in the North East with Superstorm sandy causing incredible damage to so many homes and businesses. Seeing the pictures of destruction and the difficulties of many of my neighbors here has been heartbreaking. Through all of this, I have seen people pull together and try to help one another. I have seen folks here try to put together drives to help those that have had such loss in New York and New Jersey. So, as Thanksgiving approaches, although it has been a difficult few weeks for many, we have much to be thankful for. Those of us who are lucky enough to have our power on and our house intact should be thankful every day! I hope that your family and friends are safe and that you are in your home. If you are one of those who are affected you are in my thoughts and I hope you are in a safe comfortable place while you await being able to go home and rebuild, if you can.
Since Thanksgiving is coming up and many of us will have a thanksgiving celebration, I though I would share some of the Thanksgiving crafts you can create with your kids. I hope you enjoy your thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
