- White cardboard
- Bernat “Pipsqueak” yarn, (you could probably use any fuzzy/fluffy, white yarn. This is just what we happened to have on hand here.).
- Acrylic craft paints (your choice of colours)
If you don’t have any white cardboard, you can slap a coat of white paint on the inside of a cereal box and you’re good to go.
I wanted our snowflakes to look very simple, so I went with this one.
Basically, I found a template that I liked online, and I traced it, leaving out any of the fancy bits. I transferred that tracing to my cardboard, and then cut out a number of snowflakes for the Hooligans to decorate.
While they were painting, I measured out a few feet of the yarn, and chopped it up into small pieces (1/4 to 1/2 inch lengths).When their ornaments were dry, the Hooligans brushed and dabbed the front of the ornament with glue, and then pressed the bits of fluffy yarn into the glue. Some chose to simply flip the ornament upside down, and press it into the tray of yarn. That worked too. This is what we got!
