Rorschach Snowflakes - different designGrowing up, you hear that every snowflake is unique. Whether this is true or not, this craft is perfect for demonstrating that. No matter how many times you do this craft, each flake looks different from the previous one. Kids of all ages have fun creating these symmetric patterns. They are very easy and fun to make. As a bonus, kids will be introduced to a lot of new vocabulary, like symmetrical, Rorshach painting, patterns, unique, etc.


Total Time: 5-10 minutes to make and a couple hours to dry

Yield: 1+


  • blue construction paper
  • scissors
  • white poster paint
  • paint brush (optional)
  • laminator with sheets (optional)
Rorschach Snowflakes - supplies


  1. Cut a circle out of blue construction paper. I chose two different, lighter shades of blue. My circles measure about 8.5 inches in diameter, but at least 6 inches should work well enough.
  2. Rorschach Snowflakes - cut a circle of blue construction paper, two different colors used
  3. Fold the circle in half and unfold it to be able to see the exact middle. Add white paint to one side of the circle. You can use a squeeze type bottle or drop paint onto the paper with a brush. The bottle method usually results in a thicker pattern. You can see that in my main photo compared to step 4, where I used a brush.
  4. Rorschach Snowflakes - fold circle in half and then open up to add white paint to one half

  5. Fold the circle again, with the paint inside. Press down all around the paper.
  6. Rorschach Snowflakes - fold in half again and press down to spread paint
  7. Open the circle and allow to dry. Laminate if you wish.
  8. Rorschach Snowflakes - open and allow paint to dry

I started volunteering at a daycare for mentally challenged individuals, doing art projects. This is simple yet charming!


We will be trying it soon and hanging them from the ceiling! Thanks so much!
