Imagine walking into school after Winter break and instead of seeing florescent lighting streaming down from the ceiling, your kids saw millions of paper snowflakes hanging there. Imagine how much more impactful that Winter wonderland would be if your student had attended Sandy Hook Elementary School and was now reentering school for the first time since the shooting.
As we first noted yesterday, the National PTA and Connecticut PTSA are asking kids and adults alike to make the most creative snowflakes they can and send them to be used in decorating the kids' new school. A great activity for even the youngest tots over their Winter break (you don't even have to explain why they are being sent there if your tots are too young to understand), snowflake creations can be sent to: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514.
Unsure of how to begin? We've rounded up some tutorials for both novice and experienced snowflake creators alike. So pull out the paper and scissors and get to work!
