Here’s a collection spectacular snowflake crafts and activities for kids!

Even though we live in Texas where we rarely have snow, I love snowflakes and snow activities! Maybe it’s because I was born in the northeast (PA).

In Texas we mostly get ice if we get any winter weather at all. But snowflakes are so fascinating! It’s fun to explore the science behind them, and it’s fun to design snowflakes of your own. Here’s a collection of snowflake crafts and activities for elementary aged kids (ages 5 to 10) through middle school (ages 11-13). Middle schoolers may think they are “too old,” but the reality is that they will be capable of making some really cool designs.
