How to draw a snowflake - simple instructions for you to print out NOW and do with the kids! #winter #snowflakes #kidsactivities #kids

However, if you don’t manage to do it, then print it out again to have another bash.

The instructions on the sheet (in case you would like to see) are:

  1. Draw a vertical line and mark its centre (a) Cross the centre with two lines (b), (c)
  2. The main “body” of the snowflake is done, so we can now add the “arms” in almost end of the lines. Keep them symmetrical!
  3. Sketch 2 circles (a smaller and a bigger ones) in the middle.
  4. Draw a hexagon around the bigger circle and the middle of the sides touch the points of the arms.
  5. Fill the space between each of the arms and the body lines with a colour you choose.

There are only 5 steps and they are really simple to do, so even smaller children should be OK with them.
