Snipping Snowflake

This is a great seasonal activity that practices motor skills. You can add a little early years geography by talking about weather and snowfall.

Scissors are often hard for children to master but this activity gives a nice result even if the cutting is a little haphazard!

Snipping Snowflake


Fold a square piece of paper in half, corner to corner three times. Let your child snip into the shape using appropriate scissors – the more snips made the lacier the snowflake.


Unfold the paper to see the shapes your child’s snips have made. You can introduce a little maths by naming the shapes and counting them.
