Amelia enjoyed using her bingo markers ($1 each at Dollar Tree!) to color the coffee filters and then made all the cuts herself.
I think they turned out really pretty! Amelia liked to try to figure out what the snowflakes looked like after they were unfolded; she liked to find smiley faces in them. We sent some to Grandma to make her smile.
But making tortilla snowflakes was really the highlight of this activity. I'd never thought of that before, and I think it was a genius idea! We used regular flour tortillas and folded them in quarters. Very carefully, Amelia used the kitchen shears to snip triangles out of the tortilla. Then we unfolded them, brushed them with melted butter, and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. Finally, we baked them for 8 minutes at 350F. They were a big hit!
This one definitely looks like a smiley face!
