My students love crafting and snowflake crafts are always a hit! Here is a simple snowflake art project for kids that could be used for handmade cards this winter season. I love how each snowflake is unique! A collection of these snowflakes would look so festive on a classroom bulletin board display.

*Pair this with our Snow Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!

Make this easy snowflake art project this winter season and you can decorate your bulletin board for a unique and beautiful display!

Easy Snowflake Art Project for Kids

Step 2 – Ink the Stamp

Once the stamp design is complete, use a brayer to roll out a bit of white block printing ink onto the stamp. You will want a thin and even coating of ink. Flip the stamp onto the paper, and apply firm, even pressure. Lift the stamp off of the paper to reveal your design!

Step 3 – Add a Snowy Background

To make a snowy background, invite students to dip the end of a cotton swab into some white paint. Students can choose to add several dots to the background of the paper.

Fun Tip: Use glitter glue or a silver paint pen to draw snowflakes as well.

Add paint to the foam stamp, flip the stamp onto the paper, and apply firm, even pressure.

Allow the paint and ink to dry completely, and you are done! There are lots of creative possibilities for this project.

Other Ideas:

  • Fold a sheet of black poster board in half and add your snowflake design to create a large handmade card.
  • Use scissors to cut out several large snowflakes, punch holes near the top of each one, and thread yarn to create a garland.
  • Print the snowflakes onto a roll of brown paper to create handmade wrapping paper.
  • Create a bulletin board display with a collection of several of these prints under the headline, “There’s SNOW much happening in first grade!”
