Make Cut Out Snowflake Day is here and now. A great way to celebrate the festive season and winter in general is by making your own snowflake decorations. Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day encourages you to get busy with paper and scissors to make your very own snowflake decorations! So, if you like snow...bring it on! Bring out the paper and scissors, and cut out some paper snowflakes on this very special Make Cut Out Snowflake Day.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!
When moisture condenses and freezes on a window, some say that Jack Frost has stopped by, leaving the lacy pattern as a souvenir. But we can grace our panes with paper snowflakes, attaching them with poster putty Snowflakes are fun to make and I’ve found that using paper coffee filters to make them is an easy and fun way to do so .
Flatten coffee filter
Fold it in half
Fold in half again, and continue until you can no longer fold
Cut shapes along the folded edges and the outside edge of the filter.
It’s not as though I had nothing to do today but sometimes you just have to take time out for the fun things.
All work and no play is not good, not even for us adults. Knowing that I don’t go outside and play in the snow, inside fun is best. Silly grand’ma’ that I am.
Hope you all will take some time out for fun today too and have a fantastic Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1259. for fun things to do in winter
1260. for snowflakes
1261. for a warm house
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
