Winter is now in full swing. This time of year we love to make paper snowflakes and other snowflake crafts to decorate the house. So today we are sharing this cute Tissue Paper and Popsicle Stick Snowflake! This craft uses simple materials you might already have in your craft supplies, and is a great way to recycle that tissue paper left over from Christmas. The kids will put their little hands to work tearing and pinching the paper so this is also great fine motor practice!

Popsicle Stick and Tissue Paper Snowflakes

I intended this 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!

The kids 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.

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!

Snowflake Craft

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.

These make beautiful decorations. Add string to the back to hang them from the wall or ceiling, use a strong magnet on the back for a refrigerator magnet, or place in the window so they can catch the light.
