Have you heard about the National PTA and Connecticut PTSA's initiative to have snowflakes from around the country sent to Sandy Hook Elementary School? Kids and adults alike are encouraged to make the most creative snowflakes they can and send them to Newtown, CT, to be used in decorating the kids' new school. A great activity for even the youngest tots over their Winter break (you don't even have to explain why they are being sent there if your tots are too young to understand), snowflake creations can be sent to: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514
These pretty flakes came from blogger Hayley at Life Is Sweet. She shares folding techniques for creating three different snowflake designs — the results look much more intricate than they actually are!
