fried snowflakes.

19 February 2012

My son came home from preschool today and said "Let's make something mama!" Well, okay!... bring on the fried snowflakes.*
  1. Fold a doily in eighths and snip it into a snowflake. 
  2. Place the doily in a clean, dry frying pan. Using a microplane grater, grate two colors of oil pastel 'crayons' over the doily.
  3. Turn the heat on low and watch carefully. 'Cook' your snowflake just until the crayons begin to melt (about one minute). 
  4. Turn off the heat. Remove your fried snowflake and allow to cool (and harden) on a solid surface.
Hang your gorgeous fried snowflakes in a window and liven up a bleak winter's view.

*No child necessary to make this project. Feel free to whip out a frying pan, a few doilies and some oil pastel crayons and make a snowstorm of fried snowflakes on your own as the mood strikes.
