These snowflake ornaments are affordable and easy to make with your child, although you may choose to do the prepping with Modge Podge or glitter glue to minimize the mess. I got the supplies and materials from Michael’s.
I also took over the rhinestone stickers because they were too small for his fingers, and did not stick as well due to the amount of glitter dust. Some had to be re-attached with glue gun. The glue gun also came in handy when it was time to attach the silver string, because except for two, the others didn’t come with holes.
Here’s the quote by Steve Maraboli that we’re printing on the gift cards. It says no two snowflakes are alike, just as every child is unique:
PERFECTLY IMPERFECT: We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind… there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey.
