I’m a big fan of anything that makes doing arts and crafts with kids that bit easier and this simple free snowflake template is perfect if you’re doing some winter crafts for kids or looking at creating some Christmas or weather crafts and activities with them.
The snowflake template is free to download and comes as two PDF pages and there are four different snowflake designs for you.
You’ll find one larger easy design that has a page to itself and three smaller snowflake patterns on another page if you fancy doing something a little more detailed or just changing things up a bit.
As well as the free snowflake templates I’ll also be sharing lots of ideas for ways which you can use these with your child.

As the PDF files can be printed as many times as you like it’s perfect if you want to create an activity in a preschool or classroom but likewise it’s also ideal for using at home as we have on many occasions.

What Should I Print My Template On?
What you print your template onto depends on what craft projects you want to try out.
For a lot of activities plain white printer paper will be fine. If you want to color your snowflake in white then I’d recommend going with blue paper as you can see below so that the white will show properly.
If you’re trying an activity that uses a lot of paint of glue then I’d recommend choosing cardstock instead as this is less likely to become over saturated, no one want to risk their work of art tearing!
How Can I Decorate a Paper Snowflake?
The PDF’s I’m sharing here are also the ones that I’ve used for our easy snowflake crafts so if you’d like to see these free templates in action and get some ideas and instructions for how to use this then be sure to check those out too.
I love the tissue paper and mosaic ideas and I’ve shared to this page a little video of the snowflake template in action being used with another of these crafts.
More Ways To Use Your Snowflake Pattern:
Colouring – Sometimes the easiest ideas are the best! Both of these PDFs can be used as coloring pages, if you print the snowflakes on white paper then use a blue pen or marker to colour them or you could add shades of purple and green too.
Snowflake garland – Cut out the snowflake shapes and then attach them together using string and a little bit of tape on the back of your snowflakes. These would be fun hung in a bedroom or on a mantlepiece.
Pom poms – Glue on some coloured pom poms, blue shades would be great and maybe some purples too or go wild with your favorites to create some super colorful snowflakes.
Buttons – Stick coloured buttons on to your snowflake, obviously both these and pom poms can be a choking hazard so if you are using small items with your child make sure that they are supervised at all times.
Resist Art – Cut out your snowflake and using washi tape rolled into a loop tape it onto a piece of white paper. Using paint or markers now color all over your page making sure that all the edges of your template are covered then carefully remove it to leave a white snowflake shape on your page.
Stencil – Carefully use scissors to cut out the snowflakes leaving the outside of the paper intact. Place your snowflake stencil on top of another piece of paper then use paint to create your snowflake. Sponge painting would work well for this.
