And let them be a bit clumsy and not quite like real ones, but these Christmas decorations are made with their own hands, and the child has put all his soul into them. Let first he understand how to draw a simple snowflake, and later go on to more complex and delicate options. So, let's get started.

## How to draw a beautiful snowflake?

Let's start with the most elementary. Mark the point with the supposed center of the snowflake. All its sides will intersect here. Pass through the center three identical even strips so that the point is in the middle of each of them and divides the lines into two equal parts. In total, six rays were obtained.

After stepping back from the edge, draw a tick to each of them with a spout down. Then, on each ray, draw another "tick", but much smaller and lower along the line, closer to the center. Done! Is not it true, to draw a snowflake of this kind turned out to be easier than a steam turnip? We are sure that any child will cope with this task "with a bang" the first time.

## Another snowflake

You can proceed to the next stage of complexity. To draw a snowflake number two, you need to do the same initial steps as with the first: to outline the middle and draw six rays. At the edges of each ray, draw again the v-shaped "tick".

Around the center point, draw a circle that covers the bases of all the rays. What is inside the mug, wipe it with an elastic band - it turned out like a "sun". From it between the rays, draw a short dash. And at the top of each ray, draw one more tiny "tick". Voila - there was a wonderful snowflake!

## Another beauty

And finally, the third degree of complexity. To draw a snowflake at number three, you will need to spend a little more time - it is the most elegant and patterned of all.

The basis is the same as in the previous versions: points and six rays. Next, point the point bold - it should look like a small circle. Around this shaded circle make another circle, a little higher. Almost immediately above it on each ray draw the already known "tick". And further on the principle of matryoshka - a large "tick" "smaller tick", and above it, closer to the end of the beam, the smallest.

Total on each ray should turn out three "ticks" small is small less. Now the rays began to look like fir-trees. Then on each "tick", which is in the middle of the beam, on each side of it, draw one more tiny "tick". Then, do the same with the lower "tick", just make these letters "v" a bit bigger in size. And now, from the base of the circle, draw six straight strips so that each of them connects a circle and the intersection of two adjacent letters "v", departing from the lowest, big "tick". A complex figured snowflake is ready!

## A few tips

As you can see, it was not at all difficult to draw a snowflake. Make more of these drawings. Let the baby take the initiative and offer his variants of patterns for the snowflake. Of course, all kinds of snowflakes then need to "paint" - that is, thicker to put blue or blue pencil or a felt-tip pen, you can use colors. Let the child do it himself - so he will better feel his personal participation in such a creative process. Then each snowflake can be cut in a circle, some of them with the help of an adhesive tape hang on the windows, mirrors, furniture in the children's room, turning it into a fairy-tale winter house.

In some, you can make holes, insert colored threads and decorate them with a smart Christmas tree. Well, of course, a couple of snowflakes just need to present as a gift to grandparents - even if they have a New Year's mood at their house! We wish you a plentiful "snowfall"!
