Have some wintery fun creating these simple & fun snowflakes. They can also be easily turned into a handmade ornament for your tree or a gift.

How We Did It

Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes
Start by gathering your supplies. Next create the base of the snowflake.
Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes
With scissors, cut 2 pipe cleaners in half. Using 2 halves crisscross and twist once. Add another half, and cross & twist it across the initial two. (V.'s not quite old enough for scissors yet--but of course this is a step that slightly older kids can do on their own).

With the snowflake base created, add the pony beads to each stem. This is the part where you can let them have fun with sequencing and patterning. V went right into creating a uniform pattern all the way around. After this beading, sequencing, & patterning step is completed it is time for another mom step.
Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes
Using your last 2 pipe cleaners, cut them in half, & then in half again. This will create 4 pieces for each pipe cleaner, 8 pieces total. Along each stem, have your child twist these smaller pieces above the threaded beads. Optional: repeat the last two steps to create yet another dimension to each stem.
Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes
To create a hook for ornamental purposes, place a pipe cleaner under the completed snowflake. Next, wrap around and twist creating a hook.

And there you have a super easy & simple winter craft.
