To make this you need:
- card stock
- wagon wheel pasta (uncooked!)
- white tempera paint
- paint tray and brush
- white glitterWe are fortunate here in Alaska to get a close look at snowflakes pretty regularly. We have been able to see that they are all different and that they have symmetrical patterns.
Start by drawing a simple snowflake shape on white card stock with a marker.
Next, glue the pasta over your lines.
Now sing a song, go outside, have a snack--do something for at least 10 minutes to let the glue set.
Paint with white tempera, brush with glue, sprinkle with glitter, shake off excess and you have a very lacy and very lovely snowflake.
Doing this with a group will result in many different designs. I must warn you that you will likely see more wagon wheel pasta projects in the coming weeks. I have never been much a the noodle art type, but I have been having fun adapting this activity.
