P.L.A.Y. Project: Snowflakes + Cool Crystals #5


Welcome to my P.L.A.Y. project:

Snowflakes & Cool Crystals


First post in this series is <HERE>.


I continue to P.L.A.Y. in nature whenever the “white stuff” appears out my window.

Here are more observations and snapshots from my front steps:

Sometimes there is such diversity all within the same storm in terms of shape, size, and design. I love looking these up in my snowflake field guide (below).

Surprise! Look how itty-bitty they can be!

I’ve also enjoyed expanding my search and exploration from snowflakes to also revisiting my favorite cool crystal locations down at the brook and river.

I continue to use Ken Libbrecht’s snowflakes field guide to have fun going deeper into this P.L.A.Y. project by looking up specific shapes and terms for different snowflakes and crystals.

It is all still too new for me to retain much of this language yet so for now it is just enjoyable to keep looking up new flakes as they fall!


Stay tuned for more Project Snowflake + Cool Crystal updates!


Curious Capkins love getting outdoors to P.L.A.Y. with you in all seasons and all weather!

Kiddos and folks of all ages, throw on your snow suit and make tracks to your favorite nature spot and check out those snowflakes!

Ready? Let’s go!
