It's sure magical when the snow falls from the sky, covering the world in white! Recreate some of that magic inside by making these one-of-a-kind snowflakes!
In this easy DIY tutorial, you’ll learn how to make a Borax snowflake! You can display this sparkly snowflake in the window or hang it as an ornament on the Christmas tree.
This science experiment is great for children ages 6 and older with adult supervision. It takes about 30-45 minutes to complete, but the pipe-cleaner snowflakes will then need to soak in the Borax solution overnight to crystallize.
WARNING: This project involves HOT water, which an ADULT should handle! Children should not carry or pour the hot water!
Before getting started on this snowflake craft, make sure you have a measuring cup, scissors, string, skewers, pipe cleaners, borax and a glass or jar.
