The snow is here . . . at least for Northeast Ohio.  Just a few weeks ago, we accumulated 24″ in 24 hours.  Talk about a rough start to winter!  Most unfortunately, it was the day I was hosting a gorgeous brunch.  But, I still had a couple people brave the weather and we ended up having a wonderful time.

Whether or not you have snow, I have a fun craft that your kids are sure to love.  They will be putting themselves into a winter wonderland “snow globe.”  This craft is perfect for home or a group of children (I did it with my son’s class and they loved it).

Here is What You’ll Need to Make a Photo Snow Globe:

  • Chinet Cut Crystal Plates – 7″.  After looking at several clear plastic plates, this was the best option because of the width of the plate’s border.
  • Marker
  • Drill & 3/16″ Bit (one that can cut through plastic)
  • A Photo of Each Kid (4×4 works best)
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge (Matte Finish) & Brush
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Printed Snow Globe Base Template (below)
  • Card Stock
  • White Acrylic Paint & Brush
  • Ribbon
