StoryCrafters this week heard the story of The Snow Child, retold by Freya Littledale. It's based on an old Russian folk tale about a girl made of snow who is wished to life by her elderly creators. There are many versions of this captivating, magical story! Have you heard one?

After we read our snowy story, we used the iPad to examine some real photographs of snowflakes to see what some of their characteristics are. We noticed six points on each, and symmetrical, even spaces around a center point. Then we set about making our own snowflakes from whole and cut QTips. It was a little tricky - but fun!
