Kids can make swirling snow storms or gentle snowflakes using paper and a bit of creativity during this easy Process Art activity that’s perfect for winter. This crafty idea was thought up by my daughter who was sitting on the couch with me as I cut out some Winter Printables. I was pleasantly surprised when I looked down and she had twisted a whole pile of paper strips into different shapes and patterns. Instead of throwing the scraps into the garbage we turned them into 3D winter art.
Having grown up in California I am still amazed every time it snows because unlike rain, snow is so quiet and can float around in the wind before landing on the ground. Before starting step 2 of this craft the kids and I talked about snow and what it looks like as it falls, then feeling inspired they went to work making their collages.
Here are some winter book suggestions to go along with this craft because it’s always fun to read and craft together:

White paper cut into strips
Plastic lid or tray (Optional) I like to put glue in a lid so the kids can dip the paper in the glue and stick it on their paper.
1. Have child fold, bend, and twirl the strips of paper to make different shapes and designs.
2. Have child glue strips onto blue craft paper.
