Levi worked very hard this year to make his own Christmas presents for family members. These beaded snowflake ornaments took quite a few sessions to complete (we made quite a few!), but they were worth the effort and it was a very do-able gift for an energetic little 4 year old to make. I'm proud of him for sticking it out and I only had to bribe him a couple of times with a hershey kiss or two. ;)
To make these, I took 3 silver pipe cleaners (cut in half) and twisted them together in the center to create the 6 parts of the snowflake. Next, Levi slid metallic beads onto each of the pipe cleaners, leaving about a half an inch at the end for me to fold and twist so the beads stay in place. A simple ring of wire was added for hanging.
