Day 48: Snowflake Garland (for Sandy Hook Elementary)

Day 48: I was browsing Instagram the other day, and noticed a few posts about Sandy Hook Elementary. I can’t be alone with wanting to do SOMEthing, but not knowing what. Right? The instagram posts I saw were about creating a “Winter Wonderland” out of snowflakes, for the new building the kids will be in. They are collecting snowflakes from everywhere to create this display at school. I think it sounds fantastic.

SO, I made a quick snowflake garland to send over. I’ll probably make a few paper snowflakes, too. If you’d like to see more info about helping Sandy Hook, click this link or read the info below.

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook:

Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get Creative!! Make and send snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by January 12, 2013. Snowflakes can also be delivered to CT PTSA. Please call us before for office hours at 203-281-6617.

This garland is easy to make, maybe just a little time consuming. Grab a ruler and a blue marker (I just borrowed one of my daughter’s markers) and trace out a snowflake! Remember, no two snowflakes are alike. When you’ve cut out all your flakes, you can sew them in a line. Or, glue them onto a ribbon.

Well, do you think you’ll be making snowflakes for Sandy? It seems like a fun project to do with kids.

    This is a wonderful idea, and I love that it is something that even my little kids can join (even if they don't know the exact circumstances of why) 🙂
