In China people celebrate Spring Festival, also known as Chinese New Year, usually end of January-beginning of February. It is considered a time when we say good-bye to winter and welcome Spring. This year Spring Festival day falls on January 31st. To celebrate the end of winter, I created this simple, yet engaging craft – Snow Flower.
What you need:
Few cotton balls
A paper cup
Glue
Scissors
Crayons
How to make it:
Cut the sides of the cup down to the bottom into 8 parts.
Open the sides and turn the cup bottom up – facing you.
Brush the glue over the parts, pinch small pieces of cotton and stick them over.

When finished, take crayons and color the middle. I asked the children to color with different crayons in layers. It creates a very nice combination of colors!
You can also add a ribbon or a thread on the side to hang your Snow Flower.

This activity helps develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. And of course, it encourages creativity!
