      Hi,
       
      They have the exact thing you are looking for on ebay! That is UK ebay but USA may also have them. Beware of ordering from UK at the moment as there is a postal strike on.
      Just seach for stencils and you will find snow flakes along with other designs.

      Subject: [art_education] Snowflake templates/stencils-plastic

       
      Hello All,

      I am trying to do a rubbing project with my Kindergarteners. Last year we used lots of flat textured items that they could rub over to get different textural effects, then cut out the shapes to make a snowman and added other textural items to make him 3D.

      This year I wanted to do a rubbings/resist type project using Snowflakes. I am thinking it would be cool to have some hard plastic snowflake templates or stencils to rub overwiht crayons or oil pastels. Maybe like 4"-5" big.

      I could cut them out by hand from paper, but would be WAY time consuming and tedious as I want to have many different designs for them to choose from.

      I have seen the kind of thing I am looking for with insects on them, but not snowflakes. I did try searching online but only found like paper stencils or super expensive ones you use for decorating cakes etc...

      Does anyone know of a source for this kind of thing? I know it is hard to understand what I am describing, but any direction would help.

      Thanks!

      If you find die-cut wooden snowflakes in various sizes - glue those to a base. I ve used die-cuts to make printing plates. Susan

        What about using circles of lace?

              Another great enrichment resource for snowflakes  is  http://snowflakebentley.com/       Snowflake Bentley was a man who spent his life studying and photographing snowflakes.   They used to have a lot of his snowflake photographs online but I see that they are now selling a CD.   His life story is pretty fascinating though. 

              Cindy, who is enjoying 70 degree weather and not yet thinking about snowflakes…..

                    But they were the positive design, so if he kids painted around them they would end up with a negative space snowflake. Might be a good combo to add to the lesson; positive and negative space.
