A newly fallen blanket of snow, big fluffy snowflakes falling steadily through the air, and a favorite snowflake craft are perfect for a winter afternoon! Don’t have any snow, 80 degrees and sunny? No worries, you can still create a snowstorm at home or in the classroom with our homemade snowflake stamps! We love simple winter activities for kids!
A SNOWFLAKE CRAFT YOU CAN STAMP WITH
SNOWFLAKE CRAFT STAMP
YOU WILL NEED:
- Craft foam sheet
- Craft glue
- X-acto knife
- Printable Snowflake Template
HOW TO MAKE A SNOWFLAKE STAMP
STEP 1: Print out the provided template and cut out the patterns. The template includes 2 different sizes of sets for the snowflake pattern.
Select the one you want and trace them onto the craft foam sheet using a pencil.
Then use scissors or x-acto knife to cut out the traced patterns. You will need 6 pieces of each pattern to make this snowflake stamp.
STEP 2: Cut out a piece of cardboard for the stamp base. The cardboard piece should be big enough to hold the complete snowflake pattern.
You can place the snowflake template cutouts on a flat surface to check its actual size once it is complete.
STEP 3: Now, let’s start attaching the foam cutouts on the cardboard base. Start with the longest patterns.
Keeping the square point facing toward the outside, attach all 6 cutouts on the cardboard with their plain sides in the center.
STEP 4: Grab any 2 rhombus cutouts and attach them on both sides of a long pattern.
STEP 5: Grab the rest of the rhombus cutouts one by one and keep attaching 2 opposite rhombus shapes on both sides of a long pattern.
STEP 6: Attach all 12 rhombus foam cutouts on the cardboard base.
STEP 7: Now grab the small square cutouts and place one square between every two long patterns. Or you can place them as you want.
STEP 8: Allow the glue to dry completely once the craft is complete. Then use a paintbrush to apply paint on the top surface of the foam snowflake pattern and stamp right away!
