But I took it up a notch by asking the kids to write a hope or dream for the New Year on their snowflake.
I simply printed out step-by-step directions, along with diagrams of the necessary folds. I found it necessary to individually ask some kids to come over to the table, but most were willing and they were all willing to help one another. I had a mix of 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders complete the craft.
I told a couple of the parents that this would be a Monday thing, and there was only positive feedback.
