Pasta Snowflakes

While waiting and wishing for snow, my kids have been making snowflakes. They really enjoyed making snowflakes from pasta.

It is a fun material with lots of fine motor practice!


  • dried pasta of various shapes
  • white or blue paint
  • glitter
  • craft sticks or coffee stirrers
  • blue or black construction paper
  • glue


1. Paint the pasta blue or white and add glitter. Let dry.

2. Paste three craft sticks or coffee stirrers in an asterisk shape (*) on the construction paper.

3. Use the sticks as a guide for pasting down your pasta.

Let dry and enjoy!
