How to make a snowflake

When Santa Claus gets bored, he plunges into his head - he creates billions of snowflakes from tiny ice crystals, in which there is not a single pair of twins. You can offer your child to create unique snowflakes from more affordable materials - for example, paper strips, pasta and plasticine. What could be better than how to make a snowflake with your own hands, like a good winter wizard?

Quilling snowflake

Before you make a volumetric snowflake out of white paper strips - in the technique of quilling - you need to master the skill of making dense curls - rolls. To do this, the child must learn to wind the tape on a wooden rough stick or a special fork for quilling, after which, fixing its tip with glue, carefully remove it from the base. When making a snowflake, each such curl will need to be given a special shape, at the same time squeezing it on both sides with fingers.It should be a pointed boat with two ends.

Next, we will connect each other with six such paper droplets, fixing the figure with glue. The base of the snowflake will turn out.

We make hearts from short paper strips. To do this, bend the strip in half and twisting both its ends on the wand, directing the twist inwards.

Snowflake from macaroni

Before you make a macaroni snowflake, you need to choose three types of macaroni - for example, in the form of bows and spirals.

We cut a small circle out of white cardboard.

And on a white paper we draw a skeleton of a snowflake - six intersecting lines. The distance between them should be the same, otherwise the snowflake will turn out uneven.

We place a cardboard circle on the center of the framework.

First, on it, and then - on each other - paste pasta, spreading them along the drawn lines. We use PVA glue to bond.

You can try different versions of the layout of pasta.For example, in four oblique lines lay out pasta of the same type.

And not necessarily continue the line with the same macaroni, which lie at its beginning. You can use products of another form.

Toward the end some of the lines can be branched, to make the snowflake more airy.

At the very center pasta is pasted at the end.

After the glue dries well, paint the snowflake in blue, using its different shades.You can make another beautiful snowflake with long rays from pasta.
