I like to take inspiration from ideas I see and try to turn them into something of our own. I had what I thought was a brilliant idea! Lets make a banner with rainbow snowflakes on it to add some colour to this white winter wonderland we live in here in Ontario. Brilliant right?
We started by making our snowflakes out of bleeding tissue papers. My girls love making snowflakes. We usually make them out of coffee filters (see how to make simple snowflakes on our original post HERE ).
I wanted a rainbow of snowflakes though to brighten up our days. I considered dip dying coffee filter snowflakes with liquid water colours and then decided on the bleeding art tissue paper.
When your hotplate is warm give your child one of the snowflake flags to colour while it is on the hotplate. The crayons melt like magic and it really is a different experience then regular colouring.
Have you ever had a great idea that flopped? Did you try it again to see if round two did better with changes?
