This was a very fun winter Christmas activity! Not only did we get to cut out tons of snowflakes, we got to work on Personal Progress 🙂
Individual Worth #1&7
You could also do Individual Worth #2 and talk about Patriarchal blessings- since each blessing is different and unique.
It was fun to sit, cut and chat about the differences in snowflakes and in each other- we talked about how boring life would be if we were all the same. As we cut, following directions for some specific snowflake, sometimes we would cut to much, thinking we made a huge mistake- just to see how beautiful it ended up being. It was a great relaxed night with plenty of good conversations.
We decided to have some fun with our snowflakes and share them- we lived in Saint George- and wanted others to have some snow 🙂
Snowflakes in the desert, Strange you say
Not so strange when you see it our way
These snowflakes are magic and each is unique
If you can’t tell take a closer peek
Not one Flake is the same as another
Each perfect and special compared to each other
We chose to share our magic with you
We know he thinks your special too
This season remember the love that he bears
Spread that love with the snowflakes we share
After you fold, cut, and unfold
Distribute your own magic, please be bold
Leave your new snowflakes where others can see
That YES it snows near your Christmas tree

I found some other poems that are cute & fun and could easily be added.
Help remind us exactly why
Christmas came so long ago
Cleansing the earth like each new snow
Who came to earth to withstand the storm.
Each snowflake melts as does the ice,
But we can’t forget the sacrifice;
To recollect what gives us reason
One pure, unique and perfect form,
Who came to earth to transcend the storm.
Falling to the ground.
Each one rest so gently
They never make a sound.
Are so pure and white.
The special thing about them is
No two are alike
