Make-a-flake

Heart Snow Flake

My daughter loves cutting paper. One day, I showed her how to make snowflakes. She had a ball. My daughter hates cleaning up. I cannot begin to tell you how much little snips of paper were on the floor.

Luckily, my daughter also loves to “work” on the computer. Next time she wants to make snowflakes, I am sending her to Make-a-Flake.

Make-a-flake is a snow flake maker by Barkely Interactive. This flash games folds the paper and gives you a virtual pair of scissors. Snip away at your paper and you have a snow flake. There is a preview option and even an undo button.

After you have perfected your snowflake, you can save it to their gallery, email it to a friend, or save it to your computer. When saving it you have two options, .jpg or .eps. The .eps file can be opened and manipulated in PhotoShop or Illustrator.

The best part, no clean up!

    Love this site – would be great on a SMARTboard…the kids could actually feel like they are cutting the snowflake.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    I guess I’m old fashioned, but I like the paper and scissors method. However, this is a nice way to share your creations without the risk of damaging your paper snowflake. Thanks for sharing!
