Project 3: 3D Paper Snowflake 

3D Paper Snowflake Kids Craft


  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pom Pom
  • Yarn or String


  1. You will need to start with 6 square pieces of construction paper. Make sure they are all the same size. The size of the squares will determine how big the final snowflake is. 
  2. Fold each square corner to corner to make a triangle. 
  3. Starting on the folded side cut slits, on the angle of the triangle being careful not go cut all the way through. Separate the slits about 1" apart. 
  4. Unfold the square. Take the opposite corners bring them to the center and glue in place. The fold line should be vertical. 
  5. Make 6 of these. 
  6. Glue all pieces together at the point to form a snowflake. 
  7. Finish the center by gluing a pom pom over the points. 
  8. Glue string or yarn to hang. 

How cute would these look to hang in your windows!
