Marshmallow snowflakes activity instructions

Snowflakes are a sign that the wintery weather has arrived. In this fun Christmas STEM activity, we will make our very own snowflakes which you can use as decorations, or that you can simply eat as a delicious snack! All you need are marshmallows, toothpicks or dried spaghetti, and some imagination! Kids will learn about snowflake science, hexagon shapes, molecules and symmetry.
