Winter time is the best time to get creative and make lots of the crafts with kids, after all, it’s usually too cold to be outside.
We have to come up with fun ways to stay busy. One of our favorite activities is to make crafts and since my 3 year old is obsessed with snowflakes we decided to make a popsicle stick snowflake craft.
This craft is easy to make and the kids can get as creative as they want. We’ve decorated these snowflakes using paint, sequins, markers, stickers, glitter glue and even crayons so get creative and use what you have at home.
We recently made these for our Christmas tree but have also made them at random times to decorate my daughter’s room and we even had a popsicle snowflake station for my daughter’s Frozen birthday party.
Popsicle Stick Snowflakes

Materials to decorate snowflakes:
Get creative here and use what you have at home, you can decorate it with pretty much anything although we prefer using glitter, sequins and adhesive jewels.
Grab four popsicle sticks and form two plus signs. Hot glue the plus signs together to make snowflake. If you’re doing this with a younger child you’ll want to do this part yourself to avoid any burns.
Your snowflake should look like this:
After the hot glue cools let you child decorate each snowflake. We used glitter and sequins to make designs, but you could color them with markers and paints too. Just let them have fun!
If you used glue for some of the decorations or paint on the popsicles sticks, then wait for it to dry. After it’s all dry, form a loop with the ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the snowflake. Hang on your tree, from garland, in the window or just let your child play with them.
For inspiration, here are other designs we came up with:
Hope you enjoy making this craft with your little ones!
