Snowflakes for Sandy Hook {and a Snowflake Tutorial}

When tragedy strikes, people want to be helpful.  They want to do something. Anything!

And other than praying, it doesn't seem like there is much we can do for the families and friends of those affected by the tragedy in Connecticut.

But for those of us that are 'doers', here is something we CAN do!  Apparently, the students at Sandy Hook will be returning to a new school building after the holidays.  And parent volunteers are decorating the new school building with snowflakes.  As many snowflakes as possible.  They want the kids to walk into a winter wonderland.  And the parent volunteers are requesting that people contribute snowflakes to the school.

So today, I thought I'd share one of Martha Stewart's snowflake tutorials.  And maybe you can send off a few of your creations to Sandy Hook.

This would be such an easy project to do with your kids over Christmas vacation! Even if you haven't told them about the shooting, you can tell them you are making snowflakes for kids that are sad on the east coast.

Once your snowflake creations are complete, you can mail them to:

Connecticut PTSA 60 Connolly Parkway Building 12, Suite 103 Hamden, CT 06514

And make sure they are sent by January 12th!

So get out that white printer paper and scissors and get to work! Let's help make Sandy Hook a winter wonderland in January!
