Snowy Day for Snowflakes

On the first real day of snow, we avoided the 25-degree weather and enjoyed snow inside the house by making snowflakes, as part of my December festivities. Aleks had to keep checking to see what his snowflake looked like.
Bastian still doesn't quite have the coordination for cutting even less difficult things, but we worked together to make some lovely flakes.
Aleks had fun putting the snowflakes on his head.
We used origami paper to give the flakes even more texture.
Lastly, we hung them in the dining room, whose wall does not look very snowy at all.

After all that real snowflake building, we did some virtual snowflake building too: http://snowflakes.lookandfeel.com/

Never thought about doing colored snowflakes, what a great idea, they look very festive!

Oh, I am so jealous. That is just the sort of neighborhood I've always wanted to live in.
