OPERATION: White As Snow
by Tim Werle
In Isaiah, God was talking with him offering to take away the sins of the people. Sadly, the people weren’t ready to accept God’s gift. Fortunately for us, God has also offered to take away our sins through sending His son Jesus to Earth. We only have to believe in Jesus as our Savior and we can be made white as snow. For this Operation, you will make snowflakes as intricate and unique as you. Enjoy…
1. Fold the Paper in Half
- Start with a square piece of paper.
- Fold the paper in half diagonally to make a triangle.
2. Fold into Another Triangle
- Now, fold the triangle in half so the pointy corners meet.
3. Fold into Thirds
- Fold your triangle into thirds.
- Fold and make adjustments.
4.Fold into the shape as shown.
- You may need to adjust these folds a little to get the sides to match up, so don’t crease the paper until the folds are just right.
5. Cut Across Bottom
- Cut across the bottom of your paper so it is straight.
6. Cut Lines into Triangle
- Cut the folded paper with variations of straight and curvy lines.
- Get creative with your snowflake designs by experimenting with different sizes and shapes of cutouts.
7. Unfold Paper
- Gently unfold the paper to see your unique snowflake.
“Snowflakes are miracles of beauty. Every crystal is a masterpiece of design; and no one design is ever repeated. With profound humility, we acknowledge that the Great Designer is incomparable and unapproachable in the infinite prodigality and beauty of His works.” These are the words of Wilson Bently, a true experimentalist, who meticulously collected large amounts of data as he explored the world of science firsthand. He understood that if God would design something so insignificant as a snowflake with this much care and detail, how much more he must love us. God desires that none should perish and therefore has created the perfect plan of redemption for each of us. Each time you see the snow, remember how important we are to God that he would sacrifice himself that we can be made pure. (for more info on Wilson Bently)
Keep your eyes on Him and enjoy your walk with Him!

I love this idea! I never thought that the simple and fun act of making snowflakes could open up a way to teach this lesson to my children. Thank you.
