Students at the Willard Hope Center had fun creating snowflakes.
Everyone learned how to create 4-point and 6-point snowflakes.
Everyone worked at creating many sizes of snowflakes.
Students learned that this process is called kirigami. Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes and is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami. Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut; cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami.
All were proud of their creations.
Here are some examples of the snowflakes made at the Hope Center.
