Popsicle Stick Snowflakes

I love the snow. 
I'm just not a huge fan of the cold. 
Actually I am a giant wimp in the cold. 
I just got a pair of fleece leggings which are amazing. 
People keep coming up with the best inventions. 
Like these
They totally make fake trees a million times cooler. 

Anyways...remember over thanksgiving break I told Kenzie we could do a craft every day?
Well we made 3. 
Not quite everyday but she was happy. Maybe I was a little over ambitious. 
If you missed the first two check out our Q tip Snowmen paintings and our Cherrios Christmas trees

For our third craft we made giant Popsicle stick snowflakes. 
I think they are technically called craft sticks but you get what we mean.

I had a bunch of step by step pics of the kids making them but I can't find them anywhere. 
Luckily they are super easy.

First we painted the craft sticks with white and silver paint. 
Once they were dry I glued them into the snowflake shape.

Then I let the kids decorate their snowflake with glue and we sprinkled glitter on top.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy (as Mackenzie would say). 

Then we stuffed them into our Christmas tree as decoration.

Festive and fun.
