Most children know how to make snowflakes, and these are no different. However, they must be cut carefully, and they are small. If you have one of those cubes of paper that are sold to make quick notes on, use that. Otherwise square white paper that is no more than 4 inches or 10 cms along one edge. You also need bright coloured paper, such as origami paper or construction paper - red and green for Christmas. (Use other colours if a different theme)
Remember - use sharp scissors.
Cut in one direction, don't turn the scissors during a cut - turn the paper around.
