When the children of Sandy Hook Elementary go back to school, the National Parent Teacher Association wants them to be greeted by a winter wonderland. You and your child can help welcome the students back to school, which will be in a new building, by making unique snowflakes! We have a tutorial for a simple and fun craft for you and your child can make together. You don't even have to buy a puzzle, you can use one that has some missing pieces. The snowflakes are due by January 12.
Please send them to:
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103 Hamden, CT 06514
To start, you will need some puzzle pieces, some wooden Popsicle sticks, spray paint, glue, and ribbon.
Begin by gluing the puzzle pieces onto the sticks
You can arrange them in any pattern you like. It is best to overlay them.
Take your favorite spray paint or primer (we used valspar)
And spray the puzzle pieces. You can also add glitter like we did.
After they dry attach a small piece of ribbon to them, and your are done!
