Helping Sandy Hook with snowflake love and acts of kindness

It has been on my mind and carrying heavy on my heart since Friday December 14th, 2012 this horrible tragedy in CT. My heart goes out to all the families, kids and staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary. It will be along time before things get back to normal around there.

So as a little act of kindness, we are going to make snowflakes and send to the school. Another blogger I know Mama Smiles shared this link Help Sandy Hook. Thanks so much MaryAnn for being an inspiration to others.

My kids are my world and I couldn't even imagine having to go thru this, and then right at the holiday season as well.

I am asking from you as a reader to please chip in and show a small act of kindness by getting a group together to send the love of snowflakes.


Snowflakes for Sandy HookPlease help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get Creative!! No two snowflakes are alike. Make and send snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514, by January 12, 2013.


You can do it in the classroom, Sunday school, craft play date, or just do it as a family.

Below is a fun and super easy snowflake we made for Christmas with popsicle sticks. Popsicle sticks are very inexpensive and can be decorated lots of different ways.

 
Along with this we are making hearts and placing them all over our tree with the name of each victim that lost their life. Below is a list if you need it.
