Snowflakes for the Sandy Hook Children

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:

Connecticut PTSA

60 Connolly Parkway

Building 12, Suite 103 Hamden, CT 06514

Tutorial:


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!

  3. What a great (easy) activity. The story behind it is tough, but so important for kids to understand what happens in the world.

  4. Beautiful! Such a simple, yet totally affecting project...I will certainly be taking part in this with our two children.
