FORK PAINTED SNOWFLAKES

There may not be any snow on ground anymore but winter is definitely here. We had our first snow early this season. It came long before the trees had changed colours or had lost their leaves. Needless to say I was not prepared for a snow storm in early November but it did inspire this easy snowflakes craft.

Here’s what you need to get started:

Directions

SNOWFLAKE14

Pour the white paint on your paint pallet (or use a paper plate or a scrap piece of paper to hold the paint).

SNOWFLAKE

Dip the fork into the paint. Stamp the fork in the center of the paper with the ends of the fork facing out.

SNOWFLAKE0

My 3 year old wanted “lots of paint” so I didn’t fight it!.

Then stamp the fork three more time making a cross.

SNOWFLAKE2

Then stamp the fork four more times in between in each of your cross stamps.

SNOWFLAKE11

Dip your fork back into the paint as needed.

SNOWFLAKE3

My 3 year old wanted to make her snowflakes how she wanted to. What else could I do but let her and so should you!

Repeat in all corners of the construction paper so that you end up with 4-5 fork snowflakes.

SNOWFLAKE4

“Look mommy, I’m making a snow storm!”

Next dab the q-tip into the white paint. And dab it randomly all around your fork snowflakes to create smaller flakes.

SNOWFLAKE6

3 year old version!

We also added some glitter glue, because we thought it needed a little shimmer! Glitter glue was a hit and she ended up using the entire tube!

SNOWFLAKE7

We dabbed the glitter glue on to the q-tip for easier application.

When you are done you will have a beautiful snow storm painting made of fork snowflakes and smaller flakes!

SNOWFLAKE11

Mommy version. I think I like hers better!
