Star Wars Snowflakes

Every year our family loves to make snowflakes together. We are always on the look out for some snowflakes that are better than the average snowflakes we would normally make.  These Star Wars snowflakes are seriously the best thing ever! My boys love Star Wars Crafts and Star Wars inspired recipes, so we were excited to find these.  What was supposed to be about 10-20 minutes of making paper snowflakes turned into an hour or more of Star Wars snowflakes.  I finally had to  call it a night on this project because we could have gone all night and someone has to enforce bed time around here.  I know, I hate to always be the bad guy that ruins all the fun.

As much as I love Christmas,  I also love that we have a holiday that is solely based on giving gratitude for the many blessings that we have and I want my children to take the time to recognize that they have so much to be thankful for before they start making lists of toys and treats that they hope to see on Christmas morning.
