Snowflake Symmetrical Art

In one of my very first posts, I mentioned my cooperating teacher my first year at Aspen Elementary was Mrs. Linda Lewis.  She was an amazing teacher, and had so many great art projects!  This was one of them.  It not only involves art, but symmetry as well.  We did it for Valentine's Day (using hearts) when I taught, but the end result is always so stunning that I had to adapt it for other holidays.   Here's a winter version for you.  



Supplies
*12 x 12 piece of card stock
*snowflake cut outs (in varying sizes, colors, and designs)
*Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge (optional, but SO handy!)
*pencil
*yard stick
*glue

How To
*Cut out your  snowflakes (mine range in size from 1- 3 inches).
*Draw a large X on your card stock using a pencil and yardstick.
*Then, the fun part!  Lay out your snowflake design on the penciled X.  It's fun to play around with the different configurations and layering.  I usually start with a larger snowflake in the middle and work out from there.  Remember to keep it symmetrical.  
*When you're happy with your design, glue all your snowflakes into place.



You can adapt the size and color of your paper and snowflakes to make this project much bigger, or smaller.  Experiment and see what you like.  The one below is what my six-year-old twins came up with. 


Be sure to check back next month for the Valentine's Day version of this project.

  6. winter is coming soon. For me, it's a time of magic, snow, and Christmas. Also, for students it's a time when they need an argumentative essay help. When all tasks are done it's time for celebration.
