Mosaic pieces are a great way to create an invitation to play for older kids. Find out what you need to make mosaic snowflakes today!
Since there is a ten-year difference between my oldest and my youngest kiddos, I try to find activities that can be altered for my older girls especially during the winter time when snow days are never ending.

Mosaic Snowflakes INVITATION TO PLAY
What I love most about activities like these is that they are an open-ended invitation to create, explore, touch, feel, and let your child’s imagination run wild!
Sit back and enjoy their creations! My kiddos started out by working with different pieces and colors as well as exploring the uniqueness of each tile since they are glass.
My younger kiddos explored the same shapes using their foam tangram pieces that we ultimately turned into tangram process art.
Please note: Children should be supervised while playing with the glass mosaic tiles. Please check your pieces for rough edges before allowing your children to handle them. We used this brand of glass mosaic tiles and they were all pretty smooth for the most part, but we recommend checking them just to be safe!
This is a great activity to talk about symmetry and patterns in snowflakes and create some awesome winter art that you can glue together and enjoy too especially if you are stuck inside on a cold, snowy day!
You can also add a math twist and see what your snowflakes look like with a certain number of mosaic tile pieces. Challenge your kids to create a different snowflake each time and see what they come up with!
