Super Cute Winter Snowflake Activity For The Whole Family

With snow in the forecast for the next two weeks, idle time is imminent, meaning, if I don't find something to do, the kid will wreck the house like a caged bull free in a china factory.  In my search for fun family activities, I came across the cutest ideas for snowflake decorations. I'm not talking about kindergarten snowflakes. Oh, no. These are pro-flakes. And with the crazy, yet easy, snowflake templates and tutorials, making these pro-flakes looks easy.  I'm already picturing glitter tips on mine...

Check out these super-cute decorating ideas using homemade snowflakes. I bet you'll be busting out the coffee filters before sundown Saturday.

I think this would be a cute idea for a winter party. Maybe add hanging white Christmas lights in between the snowflakes. Find the how-to, here.
