The Grand Place during the Christmas market, Plaisirs d'Hiver, is a magical experience. We took Connor right before Christmas to soak it all in. We were particularly inspired by the snowflakes in the light show against the magnificent City Hall. So inspired that we decided to give snowflake making a try in our home...Before you are too impressed know that I used this online template to make our snowflakes. And cut them one night after Connor's bedtime. She is not quite ready for the patience scissors require. Glittering however, that is right up her alley! I was pleased with how they came out and Connor was instantly intrigued by the white patterns! Which is always a good start!
Our cheap pink IKEA table makes the perfect little crafting station for these indoor crafts.We were ready to glue and glitter. We first tried to paint the glue on the flakes directly, but that didn't make for very efficient glitter-shaking and our fingers ended up sticking to the paper!
