Let’s say goodbye to January with an easy Foam Snowflake Craft! It has been a fun winter so far making Snowflake Tortillas and Paper Plate Snowflakes. Too bad it looks like we won’t be seeing any real snow.
Do you have a collection of foam shapes? For some reason I always pick up these random packages of foam shapes and never quite know what to do with them. They just look like fun!

During the holidays, I picked up some white foam snowflakes at Dollar Tree. Since we’ve been doing a lot with snowflakes, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do some crafting with them.
Winter Snowflake Crafting Tray
So I got out my handy dandy crafting tray. You know how much I love setting up my Dollar Tree crafting tray! Here is a list of what I added to this Foam Snowflake Craft Tray.
I wasn’t sure how the Kwik Stix Paint would do on the foam so I did test that out first. The paint sticks worked great and now I’m excited to do more projects like this.
Simple Foam Snowflake Craft
Once the tray is set up, you are ready to do this simple Foam Snowflake Craft! Basically we are just decorating snowflakes with the supplies. My daughter enjoys these activities since there are no rules and she can create however she wants.
We had the best Sunday afternoon decorating snowflakes! We realized it is best to start by painting the snowflakes with the Kwik Stix Paint. These dry within 90 seconds and are completely mess free!
Once the snowflakes have all the color, add the embellishments. We did the sticker gems and snowflake stickers. You could use all kinds of supplies for this. I was thinking sequins would be really pretty.
Lastly, we added the glitter glue! It takes a bit longer to dry so you don’t want to continue decorating after that to avoid messy hands.
After we had decorated a few foam snowflakes, Graylie requested all the Kwik Stix colors. I had only chosen the blues and purples for this project. In my mind those seemed like the best snowflake colors.
That is not how a 5 year old girl feels about snowflake colors! She wanted to make rainbow snowflakes and I thought it was an excellent idea.
So we painted rainbow snowflakes! Of course they turned out beautiful. Rainbow crafts are some of our favorites. With all that color we didn’t even add a lot of embellishments to these. You can’t go wrong with a little sparkle though!
This is a great easy craft for kids! I also think it could be a fun decoration for a Frozen or winter themed party. You could turn them into a garland or adhere them to windows. So many possibilities!
