        Be a Weather Child

        Encourage your child to observe the weather and describe what she sees. Ask questions like, "What do you see today?" "Is it rainy, cloudy, sunny, snowy, or foggy?" Throughout the year, point out the changes from season to season. Help your child recognize that there are different types of weather in different places at the same time.

        Step 1: Things You'll Need

        Collect the items from the materials list.
        Little Hands Tip: Have your child pretend to report the weather for the news.

        Step 2: Shred It

        With your child, shred a few tissues into small pieces.

        Step 3: Roll and Sprinkle

        Roll out some wax paper and sprinkle the shredded tissue on it. Then, cover the tissue with another sheet of wax paper, sandwiching it between the two sheets.

        Step 4: Grown Up Step

        Put the wax paper between two pieces of newspaper or paper bags and have a grown-up carefully iron it for a few seconds until fused.

        Step 5: Create Circles

        Carefully cut out one large circle and four smaller circles to create five snowflakes. If your child is not old enough to use scissors safely, have a grown-up do this step.

        Step 6: Glitter It Up

        Cover each snowflake with glue and sprinkle glitter over it.
        Little Hands Tip: Do you know a song about snow or winter? Sing it!

        Step 7: String It

        After the snowflakes have dried, use tape to attach a piece of string (about five inches long) to each snowflake. Connect two small snowflakes to the base of the large one. Then, attach the remaining snowflakes to these snowflakes, forming a mobile or chain.

        It's a Winter Wonderland

        Let it snow! Hang your sparkly creation near a window for the whole family to enjoy.
