Are you looking for a pretty winter craft? Try this simple and effective sugar snowflake idea and get in the spirit of winter.

Thanks to Katy, from the USA, who sent in this great sugar snowflake idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

Draw snowflakes with a white crayon. Trace the outline with glue. Then, sprinkle sugar on the glue to work on 3-jaw-chuck grasp while adding in a tactile sensory component! When dry, it resembles the look of ice!

It is a great fine motor skill craft!
