This winter weather has us crafting all the snowy things! Today it is snowing so my kids wanted to make a fun craft that had to do with snow. We had quite a few winter craft ideas but they settled on a paper snow globe! We grabbed things from our arts and craft box and were all set. This Snow Globe winter art project for kids was so fun and they have displayed their crafts on their bedroom doors. Looking for January art projects? This is an easy and fun craft with little mess!

How To Make A Snow Globe Art Project For Kids
Gather your craft supplies and grab a clear spot at the table.
Step 1: Draw a snow globe
Start by drawing a circle for your globe. It can be any size. We drew a larger size circle. A wonderful way to ensure your circle is even is to use a drafting compass or trace a round object like the bottom of an oatmeal canister. Help your child cut out their circle. You could even use a paper plate as the globe if you want to have a very large snow globe and not have to cut out a circle.
Now, draw a base for your globe. It can be a square or a little angled on the sides. It should be large enough to look capable of holding up the snow globe. Once that is cut out, tape it on the back side of the bottom of the circle.
Step 2: Paint A Snowman And Snowflakes
Now it’s time to paint! Don’t worry these
Now it’s time to paint! Don’t worry these art techniques are not advanced or difficult. Simple ideas are sometimes best for little hands!
Put a little of the white paint on a paper plate or an extra piece of construction paper. Your child can grab his/her q-tip and dip it in the paint. Then start dabbing little “snowflakes” onto the globe! Alternatively, kids could use puffy paint and drop dots evenly to create a snow day inside the globe.
We also decided to make a snowman for our art snow globes! If you decide to do this, you can just use a q-tip to draw three stacked white circles and use your pen to draw the eyes and mouth on to the top snowball. If you have googly eyes, feel free to use them! Once your child is done dabbing the snow in their snow globe, let it dry. It only takes a few minutes! Once your winter art project for kids is dry, hang it up in their room or wherever they choose!
This snow globe art project makes the winter art activity this holiday season or during winter break!
