Pretty Paper Roll Snowflakes — a wonderful way to recycle!

There is something special about staying warm indoors when it is cold outside. Although for little ones, an extended period of time in doors can be difficult. I have found that for my daughter, anything involving glue and glitter makes her quite happy! Thanks to quarantine we have lots and lots of paper rolls so I thought it would be fun to try to make these pretty paper roll snowflakes with them and cover them in glitter! I think they turned out well and I hope that you try it!

Pretty Paper Roll Snowflakes

Supplies:

  • 5-8 paper rolls (you will need more for bigger snowflakes or very detailed snowflakes)
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • glitter
  • glue
  • string (if you wish to hang your snowflakes)

Directions:

  • Flatten toilet paper rolls and cut in strips about 1cm.
  • Use your glue gun to connect the points of the strips to begin shaping your snowflake.
  • Continue gluing strips to the snowflake to make any pattern you wish.
  • Have fun playing around with strips and patterns!
  • Once you have completed all of your snowflakes, pour glitter in a plate and set aside.
  • Next, use a paintbrush to cover the edges the edges of your snowflake in glue.
  • Dip the snowflake in glitter and set aside too dry.
  • Once the snowflakes are dry, they may hung on your tree or anywhere you need some extra winter cheer!

I prefer the plain brown snowflakes, but my daughter LOVES the glitter ones.  We also had a little snuggle break!
