Snowflake Template: Easy to Draw!

I used this simple “Snowflake Starter” to help my 1st and 2nd graders draw their own snowflakes.  This is a great way to teach about radial symmetry.  If you are going to use watercolor paints or glue thicker materials on to the paper, print the templates onto thicker cardstock. 

Simply draw shapes or designs on the spokes of the snowflake.  If you draw something on one line, make sure to repeat the same shape or design all the way around.  

Use markers, paint, colored pencils or crayons to color.  

Get your snowflake starter template here, by clicking on the picture below to download.

For extra texture and dimension, add puffy paint, glitter paint, colored straws cut into small pieces, cotton swab cut apart, sequins, puffy balls or foam stickers.  

More examples and pictures coming soon.  I wanted to share the template so you might have time to still use it this season.  It’s such a simple drawing starter, but it has a lot of potential and gives the kids a starting point.   

Here are a few good books about SNOWFLAKES!
