Snowflake Art

Snowflake Art Project Ideas

Every Friday in our homeschool we do at least 1 art project together. Our Friday art activities theme for this week was snowflakes. This week I planned 2 different projects for the kids to work on, one was snowflakes using masking tape and the other project was watercolor coffee filter snowflakes.

Winter Snowflakes Art Project

  • White Paper
  • Masking /Painters Tape
  • Tempra paint (we used winter colors but you could use any colors)
The first was an activity I have seen on a few different websites, and thought it would be a simple and fun activity for the kids, snowflake art.
We put masking tape on the paper in the shape of a snowflake you can just barely see the yellow tape in the picture below. I have also seen people use painters tape instead of masking tape you can use either one.
Serena helped Anthony make the snowflake on his page with the tape.
Once the tape was down they painted the whole page however they wanted. They had dark blue, light blue, blue sparkle, and purple paint to choose from.
When they were done painting we carefully pulled off the tape to reveal our snowflakes. It was a very easy and fun project!

Watercolor Snowflakes

Our second project was coffee filter snowflakes, painted with water colors. First we folded our coffee filters and next they cut shapes out of their coffee filters.
Supplies Needed:
  • Coffee Filters
  • Watercolors
  • Paint brushes
Here are the finished snowflakes. They will be hung in our dining room for some beautiful winter deoration!
