Snowflake Art Instructions

Using a dot of glue in the center of popsicle sticks, glue together the centers of 3-4 sticks to form a snowflake shape. Let it sit to dry for several minutes before decorating.  Design popsicle stick snowflakes using the decorations you have on hand. Be creative and use your imagination…Remember, no two snowflakes are identical and they are all beautiful!  Warning: Small parts can be choking hazards and are not recommended for use with small children.

 

Mitten Craft Instructions

Place a hand palm down on top of construction paper. With a pencil or light colored crayon, outline the thumb and then the shape of the rest of the hand.  Do the same thing on the other side. Next, decorate as you like! Finally, cut small holes in the bottom of each and string pipe cleaner between the two mitten, tying a small knot at the end.

Edible Snowman Instructions

Holiday treats are always delicious, and more fun than ever when they look like a snowman!

Breakfast Snowman

Take a hardboiled egg and slice off two edges so it lays flat against a plate while still retaining a round shape.  Push thinly sliced celery stalks into the side to create arms and use three small pieces of grapes to create buttons.  Take another hardboiled egg and cut off both sides. Place that egg on top of the snowman body. Next, add two small pieces of tomato, a tiny triangle of cheese for mouth and cut pepper for the mouth. Finally, add a hat made out of a piece of toast laid horizontally on the head.

Dessert Snowman

Place three marshmallows on pretzel. Add chocolate chips for buttons and eyes, licorice for mouth and a candy for nose. Split half of a chocolate wafter or crème sandwich to make a hat.
