How To Make an amazing Snowflake

A snowflake is a single ice crystal that gets sufficient size and may have merged. Snowflake is a derogatory term for a person or individual to imply an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of allocation, or being overly charged, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions.

Can snowflakes be seen?

Often, beautiful crystals but not always can be seen with the naked eye.

What causes snowflakes?

A: A snowflake begins to form when a freezing water droplet freezes onto a pollen or dust particle in the sky. This creates an ice crystal. As the ice crystals fall to the ground, water vapors freeze onto the primary crystal, building new crystals in the six arms of the snowflake.

Why are the snowflakes so big?

This larger aggregate occurs when temperatures are near freezing (32 degrees), which melts some of the snow. As the snow crystal falls and it collides with other snow crystals and causing them to grow in size and appear as more giant snowflakes once they get closer to the ground.

Do snowflakes melt?

As the melting process begins, the air around the snowflake is cooled, and the falling snow does begin to melt as soon as the temperature rises above freezing point.

What is snow that looks like little balls?

Graupel is small snow pellets or soft hail precipitation formed when supercooled water droplets are collected and frozen on falling snowflakes. Graupel is seen as small balls of ice and appears more white than clear.

Material required:

Origami paper of size 20*20cm.  In the image shown, it is sky blue.

Steps to follow:

  • Fold your paper diagonally.
  • Cut off the excess paper at the bottom and fold it.
  • Fold the paper in half.
  •  Now, cut three diagonal lines along the non-folded edge of your paper.
  • Unfold your paper after trimming.
  • Tape center flaps together.
  • Now tape all of the flaps to the middle of your snowflake.

“A snowflake does not fall in the wrong place” the beauty of snowflakes, their hypnotizing outline, and their deep formation process have made them the center of legends, purity, and accurate proverbs spanning different cultures and theories, according to an ancient Zen proverb. What is special about a snowflake? It can be explained as snowflakes are hexagons, which means they have six edges. Since snowflakes are made of water, the molecular structure there is H2O. The water molecules, and when they line up and freeze together, look like Vs, and they will line up in a hexagon shape of the geometry.
