Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes – Walmart Craft


My kids love to make Christmas ornaments each year for our Christmas tree, and while I’m fairly OCD about the tree matching perfectly, I can control myself enough to let them put on a few random ornaments without going crazy.  (Though I’ll admit I do have to re-place the ornaments into their correct positions after the kids go to sleep). Hey – I haven’t been diagnosed so give me a break already!
I saw these snowflake pipe cleaner ornaments a few years back and thought they would make a fun family craft.  The kids had a blast making them and they were so easy and inexpensive to make (because I bought all the ingredients at Walmart!)that we made them again this year.  If you’re looking for a last minute craft to fill your family party, this just might do the trick!
