Are you afraid your little one will get paper cuts while creating paper snowflakes? Switch to soft Bounty paper towels next time you indulge in fun winter crafts. Here's how to make colorful, soft snowflakes. Adult supervision required.
What You'll Need:
Scrapbooking Punches (Optional)
Bounty Paper Towels
Tear individual paper towels from the roll and give one to each child. Show the children how to fold the paper towel in half, then in half again to make a square. Now repeat this folding process once more to make a palm-size folded paper towel.
Use a pair of child safety scissors to trim the four corners off. Use a straight cut, or a rounded cut. The folded paper should now have eight sides.
Let the children embellish the paper towel snowflake by using scrapbooking punches or a hole punch to make more cuts in the paper towel.
Add color to the snowflake by spraying it with food coloring. For pastel colors, add a few drops of food coloring to a small spray bottle and just enough water to allow the sprayer to draw up the liquid. You won't need much.
Spray the Bounty paper towels with the colored water. Let the color soak into the paper towels. Now carefully unfold the snowflakes and let them air dry. Thread pieces of yarn through the holes in the snowflakes and hang them in a window for the holidays. Enjoy your fun winter crafts!
