Tie-Dyed Snow Flakes

Posted by: Rhonda January 13, 2015

Of course the best activity in winter is to get outside and enjoy the snow! But for the times when the weather doesn't cooperate, try this snowflake-making project with your kids to bring the beauty of the season indoors.

The fun is in the process so make sure you have enough coffee filters on hand!  It is fascinating to watch the colors bleed and blend together—often with unexpected results—as the water rises up the filter. An undocumented delight of our project occurred at cleanup time when one child discovered that she could create a “snow storm” by blowing all the cut bits of paper off the table and into the air! Of course, everyone else had to try it as well. An indoor blizzard! 

See how to do the project here.
