Make-A-Flake: Have Some Online Snowflake Fun!
Do You Need A Distraction, A Change of Pace? Make-a-Flake Online!
❅ Maybe you are feeling a little flaked out like me. Are you also down with a bit of a cold, fighting it with zinc products, vitamin C, elderberry, and more?
❅ Can you not read sensibly nor write much since you have just enough fever to make you chilly one minute and warm to wish for snowflakes the next?
❅ Does the misery have you down and is the effort to get better making you dizzy?
Trying to stay hydrated is a full time job, and even when sick you can only sleep so much. Nobody wants to hear your scratchy voice whine about your virus, nor does anyone want to get near you. Who can blame them?!
Are things gloomy enough for you? Don’t fret! It's time to brighten life up a bit! There is something fun and easy for you to do!
It is soundless so as not to rack that headachy brain, it will not drain energy already sapped from keeping up with the get-well regime, and you can turn on nice, soft winter music while designing some pretty flakes.
Wanting and needing a distraction from the miserables, a HubPages snowflake poem helped me remember the crafty Make-A-Flake site. Yay!
This sure-fire distraction with zero consequences in case of a botched flake (likely in my current condition), this passed some time nicely and I thought you might like to learn about it.
What Is Make-a-Flake?
❅ The Make-a-Flake website is maintained to keep it sparkly clean, allowing kids of all ages to express their creativity when making snowflakes. The site's navigation is no challenge (it is super easy) but a look at the Gallery gives you insight into how really simple or amazingly intricate the creations can be.
Click “Make Your Own Snowflake” to pop up your paper and scissors tools. The site then folds your paper just right and your cursor guides the scissors for each snip. After a bare few minutes practice you will learn to operate the tools on the page, then you’ll be busy using your new skills with the snippers and showcasing your own flakes.
Make Your First Online Snowflake With Make-a-Flake!
☃ For a first try, use your scissors to click just above the bottom point of the paper on either side, then go diagonally up across to the other side about half-way up the page and click there.
☃ Next click on “Preview Flake” in the green curtain above the table. You’ll see your first Make-a-Flake star! Now you can click on “Save My Flake” or “Cut Some More.”
☃ Choose “Cut Some More,” then “Undo,” and you will be able to start fresh without having to go through the “Start Over” prompts.
You might be wondering how bored I can be to write about snowflakes, but I warn you--give this a try to you may need an addiction class. Just be sure to look the rest of my hub over and leave a comment before you go to the site :-). Every time I make a flake I smile in spite of my cold!
Make-a-Flake will help keep kids occupied, give senior adults a neat brain activity, as well as give you a quick creative outlet during down time no matter why you are in a waiting mode. Check it out and share the site with others during the sniffles season.
