I did the neatest Christmas craft project with my 6 year old this week. We made a snowflake out of pipe cleaners and Borax. Here is a direct link to the printable instructions for making a Borax snowflake.
- pipe cleaner
- boiling water
- wide mouth jar
- blue food coloring (optional)
The first step is to cut a pipe cleaner into 3 pieces. Then twist them together in the middle to form a 6-pointed figure.
Tie the end of the string to a pencil.
Next, get your wide mouth jar.
and your Borax.
Leave ornament in Borax solution overnight. Remove from solution and you will have a beautiful snowflake covered with crystals.
