How deep is the snow?  Have the kids guess at how deep it is and then measure it with our snow measuring stick!  This stick is a great winter craft for kids and will even get them talking about measurements!  It is also a beautiful addition to your winter landscape!

What you'll need:

  • Wooden stake (available at most craft stores)
  • Wooden snowflake cut-outs, various sizes
  • Blue and silver craft paint
  • White 3-D paint
  • Blue and silver glitter paint
  • Glue
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • Pencil
  • Paint brushes
How to make your Snow Measuring Stick Craft
  • Paint the wooden stake blue and set aside to dry.  This will most likely take 2 coats.
  • Paint your snowflakes silver and set aside to dry.
  • For the big snowflake, outline the piece in silver glitter paint, then do an inner line of blue glitter paint, then fill in the inner part of the snowflake with more silver glitter paint.
  • For the little snowflakes, squeeze a little silver glitter paint onto each one and then brush the paint around to get a nice even sparkle.
  • Use your tape measure to mark out 1 inch increments on your blue stake.  Go back over these numbers with white 3-D paint so that they stand out. 
  • Glue the large snowflake to the top of the stick and glue the smaller snowflakes along the stick for decoration.
  • Place outside and wait for snow!
