Tissue Paper Snowflakes

I intended this tissue paper snowflake craft to be for my preschooler, but my elementary aged child came in and exclaimed, “Those are cute!” and wanted to do one too. So I think this would be fun to do with all ages from toddlers, kindergartens, and more! Not only are these easy paper snowflakes for kindergarten simple to make, but these popsicle snowflakes are super cute too!

Plus children will get a lot of fine motor practice with this craft. All of that tearing, scrunching, pinching, and sticking is a lot of work for little hands. Younger kids may need some help, or a little break while completing this activity.

Easy Paper Snowflakes for Kindergarten

This snowflake craft only uses a couple simple materials you probably already have laying around your house!

Materials:

  • 3 popsicle sticks
  • white or light blue tissue paper (regular, metallic, or even glittery!)
  • glue

We had a lot of white tissue paper on hand that we in gifts that we wanted to re-use, so this was a great way to do that. These snowflakes would also look really nice with light blue tissue paper, metallic silver, white glittery… so many possibilities!

Popsicle Snowflakes

Before beginning this craft, tear pieces of white tissue paper and set aside so they will be ready to stick onto the popsicle sticks.

Next place a drop of glue onto the middle of a craft stick and glue another stick on top. Repeat with the last popsicle stick to layer them in a criss-cross design, as shown below.

Let this dry before moving on. This way the popsicle sticks wont come apart while adding the tissue paper in the next step.

Now it’s time for the fun part! Add a strip of glue to the tops of each popsicle stick. Grab a piece of tissue paper and pinch it to bunch it up just a bit. It doesn’t need to be a tight ball. Stick these bunched pieces of tissue paper onto the popsicle sticks until they are all covered.
