Snow Globe Activity Preparation
Now, let’s break it down step by step:
Capture The Moment
Start by printing out a favorite winter photo of your child. Action shots like playing in the snow, skiing, or sledding are perfect for this project.
Cut It Out
Carefully cut around the image of your child using scissors or a craft knife. For safety, moms should handle this step.
Create a Snowy Backdrop
Cut a piece of white paper into an oval that fits within the size of your contact paper. This will act as the background of your snow globe.
Punch out white circles from paper to create faux snow. If you don’t have a hole punch, you can use pre-purchased paper circles.
Assemble Your Globe
Lay out one side of the contact paper, sticky side up, and arrange your child’s cutout and the paper snowflakes on it, creating a snowy scene. Make sure to put the photo face-down so that when the globe is turned over, you see the picture!
Seal with Care
Gently fold over the unused portion of contact paper on top, sticky side down, to seal in your winter wonderland. Smooth out any air bubbles and ensure it’s well sealed.
Date or Name
Use a permanent marker to write the year or your child’s name at the base of the cardstock or paper, turning it into a keepsake.
Display Your Craft
Your Paper Snow Globe can now be proudly displayed on a window, refrigerator, or wall, adding a personalized touch to your holiday decor.
As you place the finishing touches on your Paper Snow Globe Keepsakes, take a moment to appreciate the joy of crafting together. This craft goes beyond scissors and paper—it’s a hands-on opportunity for your kids to learn about the wonders of winter while honing their fine motor skills.
This snow globe craft is not just a fleeting holiday activity, but a treasure that can adorn your home year after year, bringing back sweet memories each time it’s displayed. And the best part? It’s a gift of time, creativity, and love that your children have crafted with their own two hands.
Stay tuned for more craft ideas. Enjoy this merry little project, and may your holidays be filled with laughter, learning, and the warmth of family time well spent. Happy crafting, moms!
