Torn Paper Snowflake Craft

Torn Paper Snowflake Craft

Snowflake crafts are always fun to make during Winter.

We particularly love cutting out paper snowflakes, but they can be a bit challenging for preschoolers, so we needed to find an easier craft that you can make with your younger kids.

That’s how this easy Torn Paper Snowflake Craft came to life!

It is perfect for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners, and it requires very few materials that you might already have at home.

Besides that, it is a fantastic way to keep your children happy, busy, and learning. In fact, this winter process art project will help them:

  • Develop hand-eye coordination
  • Work on their fine motor skills
  • Improve their problem sorting skills
  • Better their concentration
  • Boost their creativity

It is also an excellent activity for some quiet time where kids can work on their own as an independent activity.

Or, you can use this opportunity to talk about winter and snowflakes.

How To Make Torn Paper Snowflakes

As I told you above, this snowflakes art project doesn’t require many supplies, making it very inexpensive. You can see the complete list of materials you need below.

You can also find the instructions we followed and download the template.

Don’t hesitate to make them at home or in your classroom. They look so cute hanging from the ceiling!


To make your snowflakes, you’ll only need:

  • Snowflake Templates available at the end of this post
  • White paper and printer
  • Glue
  • Scissors (optional – more details in the instructions below)
  • Scrap paper, cardstock, construction paper, or origami paper. You can let your kids use any color they like, but we recommend sticking to blue, purple, and pink to get a winter vibe.

  1. Download and print the snowflake templates on regular white paper.
  1. Get your kids to tear off small pieces of your colored paper or cardstock and set them aside.

Tearing paper is an excellent activity to strengthen the hand muscles and work on fine motor skills.

Alternatively, you can let your kids cut small pieces of paper with scissors to help develop cutting skills.

As you can see, we tried this craft both ways and you can do the same!

  1. Help your child apply glue to the snowflake outline. You must do it in small areas as glue sticks dry fast.

You can also use regular white glue and let your kids apply it with their fingers or a brush.

  1. Add the paper scraps on top of your snowflakes. Make sure the entire outline is covered, and no black spaces can be seen.

* You can also teach your kids how to apply glue on each paper scrap and glue them one by one, instead of following steps 3 & 4.

Aren’t they super cute?
