But that hasn’t stopped us from enjoying the beauty of winter from indoors with an endless supply of snow and snowflake crafts! Today, we add another one to the mix – Marshmallow Snowflakes!

Sometimes the girls find it easier to get started with a new craft, with a little guidance, not just a blank page. So I created these basic, black and white snowflake printables to use as guides. I told them the lines were where they should place the toothpicks, and the dots represented marshmallows connecting them together. My 3 year old started off simple…
… but quickly was ready to connect the dots!
My 5 year old opted for some slightly more complex snowflake designs.
And best of all, they worked at this for a good half hour, side by side, sharing and helping each other beautifully. Those moments don’t happen often, but it’s always such a great feeling when they do!
