Snowflakes in Arizona?

That’s right. Something crazy happened at the Powell Home… we found snowflakes!!! A very rare occurrence in Arizona.

Okay, so it wasn’t “real” snow but since we are firm believers in taking action and making things happen, Matix and Marley decided that if they couldn’t get Mother Nature’s version of snowflakes, that they would just make their own. (LOVE my proactive kids!) I might be a little biased, but these snowflakes are definitely some of the prettiest I’ve ever seen! :)

Supplies:
-Pony Beads
-Pipe Cleaners
-String

Step 1: Form your snowflakes. We made them in all shapes and sizes.

Step 2: Decorate your snowflakes! Matix and Marley loved this part because they got to make their snowflakes as colorful and unique as they are. :)

Step 3: Use the string to hang the snowflakes. “Oooo” and “ahhhh” at the magic. :)
