- 3 popsicle sticks
Drop a Dab of Glue on Each Stick
To turn your popsicle sticks into a snowflake you need a few popsicle sticks and some glue. You'll use between three and four sticks depending on how you want your end product to look. In the center of the popsicle stick drop a dab of glue and then layer the sticks on top of each other, creating a snowflake shape. This is great fine motor work for preschoolers!
Add the Glitter
The next step is adding the glitter! Spread glue onto each of the popsicle sticks. Sprinkle glitter over the wet glue in whatever colors you want. When you are done shake off the excess glitter and set aside to dry. Put an extra sheet of paper under the glitter projects so you can fold up and throw away when you are done, making clean up much easier.
Add String for Hanging
On the back of your glitter snowflakes glue a piece of string so that you can hang them, or in a loop so that to use them as ornaments on a Christmas tree, but they make great decorations for wintertime too. No matter where you hang them, these snowflakes are eye-catching.
