Popsicle Stick Snowflake

Materials: 3 popsicle sticks, glue, paint brush white paint

Directions: Glue popsicle sticks to form an X and then put a third horizontally through the X to form a snowflake. Allow glue to dry. Once dry, have your child use a paint brush to paint the snowflake white. You can sprinkle with glitter at the end and add a magnet to the back or a ribbon to the top.

**My son really liked this project. It went over much better than I thought it would. He was giggling the entire time he was painting. I plan on glittering it and putting a magnet on the back so I can hang it on my fridge. But first I have to get those things from the craft store! ;)

Yay Sara! We have made those snowmen when I was teaching and they are so fun! You can also do marshmallow "sculptures" with your left overs. (Basically just let them build using the pretzels and marshmallows.) I hope you guys have fun. :)
