Materials for Your Winter Activities
I always like to suggest taking stock of the materials you already have before diving into projects. Then see if any of the snowflake activities match up with what you’ve found.
Of course, I’m also not opposed to picking up some extra supplies, either. The state of my own teacher stash can attest to that!

- Cotton balls
