You know that I am teaching kindergarten and first grade this year, right? Though I have taught preschool for years, teaching kindergarten and first grade requires developing new, age-appropriate lesson plans. I decided to make the theme for the final two days before our holiday break a Christmas theme. The craft for the last day would be a Nativity scene.
What I needed was a good craft idea for the first class. I didn’t have one. Then, the answer came in an email from Handmade Charlotte. She shared an adorable snow globe craft with a FREE TEMPLATE. It was exactly what I was looking for! [Thanks, Charlotte!]

It is no secret that I love crafts that children and their parents can do together. You color together, you talk, you decorate with sparkles, you admire and then enjoy a treat to celebrate a job well done. This snow globe craft is perfect for crafting togetherness.
The samples in the above images are ones that I made. I used colored pencils, a yellow highlighter, gold glitter and gold curling ribbon to string through the top.
The gold and white glitter globes [pictured below] were made by one of my students. Lucie had actually run out of energy. She vigorously colored and decorated two of them but then she got tired. For the final two, she just quickly dotted and swiped with Elmer’s glue to get it done. Then, she stopped. I asked her if I could add some glitter for her to finish them and she gave me the “OK.”
The simple gold and white snow globes turned out so pretty, I made a point of snapping a picture so that I could show them to you. [pictured below]
How To Make A Paper Snow Globe Tag
This craft is super easy to make. I recommend printing the template on white cardstock, which will hold up a lot better for use as a gift tag, tree ornament or even a holiday banner! Cardstock is sturdy.
Here is what you will need:
Download the free snow globe printable gift tags template on your computer.
Print the template on white cardstock. One page per person.
Color the designs on the snow globes.
Put dots of white glue on the designs.
Sprinkle glitter on them.
Cut out each of the snow globes.
Put a hole at the top of each one.
Cut a ribbon according to your needs: gift tag, Christmas ornament or banner.
String the ribbon through the hole in the top of the paper snow globe.
