What a CRAZY two weeks it has been! Being a teacher, I do look forward to having a few snow days. But 7 days in two weeks...a little strange here in Arkansas! What is even stranger is that we not only had snow two weeks in a row...but 20 inches of snow on Wednesday this week! Okay, for those who do not know..we NEVER see that much snow at one time or even all winter! Yep, we set a new record! It had been like 80 years or something crazy like that since we had a snow like this.
With that said, I thought of the really cool snowflakes that I made to hang in my classroom. My family and I were eating at this local mexican restaurant around Christmas. Hanging from their ceiling were these awesome stars/snowflakes. I asked our waiter if someone had made them. The guy probably thought I was more than a little weird for asking. He told me one of the waiters had in fact made them. Okay...I instantly thought...those would be really cool hanging in my classroom for the winter! I studied them while eating. Before leaving I asked if it was okay if I took a picture. I knew that I could figure out how to recreate them if I had a picture.
Here is the picture I took at the restaurant.
Here are a couple of the snowflakes that I made. I got a little happy making them so I ended up with several. I think the blue one is my favorite!
