WINTER SHAPES DECORATION

The shapes in the Winter Craft Kit include snowflakes, ice skates, stars, and even snowmen! To make a hanging winter shapes decoration take these steps:
Step 1: Begin by decorating your shapes. Use the glue to attach glitter, pom poms, gems, or fuzzy sticks to the felt.
Step 2: Take a hollow paper tube and loop a sizable amount of cording through the tube, so that there is an equal amount of cording hanging down from either side.
Step 3: Using a small hole-punch or a pair of scissors, poke a small hole through the top of the decoration. Loop one end of the cording through the hole in the felt and tie to secure. Repeat several times on each side, until you have a mobile of hanging winter decorations! Hang or place the tubing horizontally so that the chain of decorations flows downwards.
POM POM SNOWMAN
Crafting with Kid Made Modern’s Holiday Craft Kit is the perfect way to celebrate the greatest time of year. Using the tools in the kit, you can make an adorable pom pom snowman to keep you company in the cold.
To make your very own sparkly snow buddy, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Stack three pom poms on top of each other and secure them together with a dot of glue or a piece of tape.
Step 2: Use the glitter sticker sheets to cut out a triangle nose shape. Attach two google eyes and the nose to the top pom pom.
Step 3: Lastly, use a fuzzy stick to give your snowman arms and a scarf. Wrap one fuzzy stick around the base of the second pom pom and bend either side upwards to create snowman arms. Wrap a short piece of a fuzzy stick around the base of the first pom pom to create a scarf that will keep your snowman warm all winter long.
POPSICLE STICK SNOWFLAKES
Popsicle stick snowflakes are a sweet and simple winter treat. Using Kid Made Modern’s My First Arts And Crafts Library, your little one will have all the tools they need to make a snowflake as unique as they are.
Here’s how to create the snowflake shape:
Step 1: Lay three Jumbo Craft Sticks across each other and secure in the center with tacky glue. Once the glue on the sticks has dried, it’s time to begin decorating!
Step 2: Use the blue fuzzy sticks and sticker-backed gems to adorn your snowflake.
Here’s a sparkly suggestion: to cover your whole snowflake in sparkles, brush a thin layer of tacky glue over the popsicle stick and gently dip in loose glitter.
