There are plenty of kits available for making these but the materials are also fairly simple to find. My son has a little less patience and focus than my daughter did at his age (2), but he wanted to join in the snowflake making.  I was impressed and surprised that he managed to put one together himself.  I think it was more an exercise in patience for mommy than it was for the toddler!  I practically had to sit on my hands to keep myself from helping him as hed drop beads and work so hard to get them onto each stem.  He was so determined!  In the end, he did a great job making one for his swim instructor. Pin It Materials: chenille stem(s) in silver or metallic blue […]
