Snowflake Study

Building igloos, snowmen, and making snow angels is fun and all, but the closer you look at snow, the more magical it becomes. All you need is dark fabric, a magnifying glass, and…snowflakes of course!

We found this lovely photo and a great explanation of how to view the snowflakes at Rhythm of the Home in their section on “Winter Crafts for Children,” but we found the advice pretty much the same everywhere.

The key is to make sure you freeze your black material first, and make sure your hands and even your breath doesn’t melt the snowflakes.

If you want to take it a step further, we even found it’s possible to save your snowflakes on slides permanently.
