Snow Globe Paper Craft will keep your kids or class busy. There is something therapeutic about tearing paper into little bits. Tear, glue, tear, glue. It’s just like our torn paper pumpkin, fun and great for fine motor skills. A win-win in my book. This is a great project for preschool (see bottom photo) through elementary age children.

Large Group and Classroom Teacher Tip: I prepared as much as possible ahead of time by guesstimating the size of paper they would need. For example: Every child only received 1/3 of a sheet of white paper and about a 1 inch square of orange. I didn’t want to have tons of waste left over from the paper. These are also great to make during winter class parties.
Mom tip: Don’t worry about the torn up little bits of paper. Hopefully they’ll tear and glue quietly so that you can have a few moments to yourself.
Snow Globe Paper Craft Directions
- Snow globe: Draw a large circle on the blue paper and a rectangle on the black for the base, then cut them out. Tip: For the large blue circle, I used the bottom of a globe in the classroom for a tracer and a mixing bowl at home.
- Snow and Snowman: Tear the white construction paper into small pieces.
- Glue: the bits to make a snow scene with a snowman.
- Snowman Details: Add a little piece of orange for the nose, brown for stick arms, black for a hat and mouth, and red.
- Optional: Add white crayon snowflakes in the sky and/or add clear glitter to make the sky sparkle.
