Living in a Snowglobe

As another bout of snow and freezing is hitting our area, I thought I would share a craft we did that the girls loved! I found the idea on Relentlessly Fun, Deceptivly Educational last year and I knew it would be a perfect one for when it was too cold to go outside! Snowglobes are so much fun and who wouldn’t love an art project that was also a snowglobe you could shake.  We started by tracing the circle on a piece of construction paper using the clear plastic plate. The kids then painted a snowy scene inside that circle. I didn’t tell them what we were making so it was a surprise. When it dried, we took scrapbook paper and cut a trapezoid out for the base. This is a fun way to use those Montessori metal insets! e glued the base down under the circle we traced. Then we dropped a handful of fake snow power in the middle of the picture they painted. Next it was my turn to help out. Taking the hot glue gun, I put a glue bead on the traced circle and glued the plastic plate onto of the picture and the snow. When it dried, it was all done! Art that shakes up like a snowglobe! Awesome winter fun!
