This is a very easy, inexpensive craft that is fun to do with children of all ages!
All you need is dried pasta, glue, and wax paper.
Glue the pasta together in any snowflake shape you want on top of the wax paper. I found that using a lot of glue helped hold it together better.
Allow the glue to dry. Once it is dry, peel the wax paper off and you have a beautiful snowflake to display!
You can hang it with fishing line, string, ribbon, etc. if you want.

Turn your kids loose with various sizes and shapes of pasta, a bottle of glue, and some glitter! They can create beautiful snowflakes (which make pretty Christmas tree ornaments/gifts), noodle people, dinosaurs, etc. Just have some pasta shapes such as wheels, bow ties, elbows, spirals, etc., turn their imagination on, and let them go! It works best to glue the projects on small sheets of wax paper. It's easy to peel the wax paper off after the project dries.
This is a page about making dyed pasta (preschool activity). Preschoolers love to play with dried pasta. This colorful variation offers even more activity possibilities.
