The Snowflake Project --- Art project for Sandy Hook Elementary School


Artist friends and families with children: Anybody who wishes to make paper snowflakes to help decorate the unused, barren middle school that is being refurbished for the Sandy Hook Elementary School children, can do so and send them to the address below. Make them glittery and bright! Be sure you don't write anything on them. The text below is written for schools and teachers, but individual artists, families, or businesses are welcome to contribute too. The deadline for receiving the snowflakes is January 12. Here is the information Bonny posted:

A building has been designated to house the students from Sandy Hook Elementary School. They are in the process of transporting desks, chairs, supplies and so forth to this location.
My neighbor is the president of the Newtown PTA and we met tonight discussing what we can do to make these children feel comforted upon their return
to school.
Please join us in "The Snowflake Project".
We are asking your students to make and decorate a snowflake. We will hang them in the hallways at the stark, new building where the Sandy Hook students will be returning. PLEASE NO WORDS! We want just a cheerful, happy (glitter and sparkle) environment for the students entering the new building.
Please pass on to any teachers you think may want to participate.
When you send your snowflakes, please include a note to tell us where they are from (your school, class, town, etc) to display along with your snowflakes. You can send them to:
Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, Conn. 06514

  1. Thanks so much for posting this! I linked to this post in my blog. I also got out my scissors, and made some snowflakes. It made me feel a bit less helpless. Thanks again.

  2. Hi,
    My friend and I spent the day making snowflakes for the kids. I saw this on HLN and could not wait to be able to do something for those folks.
    We will mail them in Xmas Eve.
    Thanks for posting this and I hope we can all come together and take some time to make their return the Winter Wonderland that they are hoping for!!!

    Lane Bryant is donating all the snowflakes from their winter decorations to the project. How cool is that! What a great place to work. :-)
