Every Snowflake is Unique

It is a January tradition, and my kids are figuring out that I am a sucker for tradition.
Since the weather is decidedly wintry today (hovering around zero degrees), it seemed like a good idea to let the little wild ones go crazy with scissors and paper instead of leaping off of the furniture.

See Ian's face?  He thought I needed "some action in the picture."
Brynn had her heart set on something more then just snowflakes.  She had spotted this project the other day when she was looking at Pinterest over my shoulder.  There is a free template here, but I just drew my own and used some old red file folders for the bodies.
Then I cut out some snowflakes - no two the same - for the skirts.

Viola - Snowflake Ballerinas.
They make a really cute window decoration.
Now the kids are back to their other winter question: "MMOOOMMM, WHEN'S IT GONNA SNOW?"

Those are SO cute!!! I have thought about doing snowflakes for art class but figured they'd cut through all the edges and everyone would be crying. Way to go!

Love that Brynn enjoys Pinterest. M&M sneak on sometimes too.
