Winter Crafts that Match Winter Stories

We may not have snow in Singapore, but we certainly know how to engage our students at Razum International School. Here are some fantastic winter crafts that we have paired with outstanding read-along books.


Read Aloud - ‘Where Snowflakes Fall’ by Claire Freedman


Craft Idea: Paper snowflake

Materials:

  • 8 Paper lunch bags

  • Glue gun

  • Scissors

Steps:

  1. Glue together the eight lunch bags.

  2. The adhesive should be applied to the bags in the shape of a T.

  3. Continue until all of the bags have been stacked and sealed together with the unopened or sealed side.

  4. Using scissors, cut snowflake designs on the stacked bags.

  5. Unfold the paper bag using the open end; fan bags out to ensure that the bags separate and open correctly.

  • Glue gun

  • Sea salt crystals

  • Personalised photo

  • Pictures of other winter decorations/animals
