Every month, parents come in and lead a seasonal craft lesson with the class. Nicholas' mom came in and taught us how to make
a wacky winter wonderland!
Look at those poor students who woke up in a snow globe!
Is this fantasy or reality?
This student didn't mind.
He made the best of it and started juggling snowballs!

Are you interested in making snow globes with your students? We have been working on the skill of following directions, so here are the directions for making a snow globe!
❄ ❄ ❄
Gather materials: photograph of each student trapped in the snow globe, snow globe template made on card stock, white paper (to glue on for background snow), lined paper to write a few sentences about "If I lived in a snow globe...", scissors, crayons or markers, glue stick, hot glue gun, clear paper plates, and a bag of fake snow.
1. Cut out the student
2. Make the paper background snow and glue it to the snow globe template.
3. Glue the student to the snow.
4. Add background (trees, snowmen...)
5. Place some snow in the plate
6. Hot glue the rim of the plate. (See example photo)
6. Place the paper template face down on top of the rim. Beware, the hot glue is...hot! :-)
7. Wait for the glue to cool.
8. Flip the snow globe over to see the student trapped in the snow globe!
9. Write a message: "If I lived in a snow globe..."
10. Glue the message to the base of the snow globe.
Have fun with your winter wonderland!
