Though real snowflakes have six sides or points, these 4- and 8-sided paper snowflakes are much easier for younger kids to make than the classic 6-sided paper snowflake.
4-SIDED PAPER SNOWFLAKE
Start out with a square piece of paper, preferably thin or lightweight paper. You can use square origami paper or follow these easy steps for making a square from any rectangular piece of paper.
8-SIDED PAPER SNOWFLAKE
Gently unfold the paper to check out your 8-sided snowflake. Once you get the hang of it, making these paper snowflakes is simply addictive!
