Countdown to Christmas - Day 2

Today we made paper snowflakes. Some we hung up as plain white snowflakes. For other ones, we put translucent paper behind them (the same kind of paper that I use to make my window stars).

This white snowflakes in this picture have different designs at the end of the snowflakes - roses, giraffes, trees, birds, and more. The green and red stars are made from a translucent paper.

The girls tried to make some of the more complicated snowflakes, but it was difficult to cut through so many layers of paper.  So, instead, they made circular snowflakes by tracing around a bowl and then folding the paper.  Here is the window with some of the snowflakes they made:

In addition to making the window stars, we also went to Minnesota Orchestra's performance of "Sleigh Rides."  It was a wonderful concert!
