To create these designs, lay Melty Beads onto the pegboard shapes shown or create your own designs. Making snowflakes is a great time to talk about symmetry in nature.
To melt, follow the instructions included in your package, or read about the Basics of Melty Beads here!
Tip: For symmetrical patterns, start at the center and branch out.
Tip: Even though snowflakes are mostly depicted in white, you can continue the “cool” theme and stick to “cool” colors on the color wheel, such as shades of blue and purple.
Tip: Pair this craft with a discussion on geometry and practice identifying shapes!
Tip: For this design, we first created an outline around the pegboard before filling in the inside.
Tip: mix shapes, like circles and arrows into your snowflake shapes.
