Not only are we (hopefully!) going to break an awesome record, but we will be using the paper snowflakes to share your messages of hope, concern, and bright ideas for the future of our planet. As Earth Rangers, we know climate change is a big problem for our planet – but we also know that when we work together, we can make a huge impact. For today’s eco-activity, it’s time to get your snowflake on! Here’s how to participate:

Here’s what you need:

  • Paper – either use scrap paper for an eco friendly alternative or download and print off the template we have created here
  • Scissors
  • Writing utensils
  • Decorations (optional)

Follow these simple steps below to create your snowflake – even if you’re using a piece of scrap paper, you can pull up the template online to use as a reference and follow the instructions.

  • Start with a symmetrical square piece of paper
  • Fold your snowflake according to the directions on the template
  • Cut out your snowflake
  • Write your message on your snowflake – you can come up with your own idea or complete the prompts on the template if you need inspiration
  • If desired, add decorations
  • Send your snowflake to Earth Rangers Headquarters (9520 Pine Valley Dr, Woodbridge, ON L4H 4Z2) in the mail with “Attn: Snowflake Challenge” on the envelope so that we can put it towards our record-breaking attempt! 

If you decide to create your own snowflake on scrap paper, please make sure your snowflakes:

  • are symmetrical
  • have 6 sides by folding it accordingly
  • exceed 10 cm (3.94 in) in height and width
