One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is the opportunity to make holiday crafts! I love that that love of Christmas crafting has rubbed off on my kids as well. They love doing Christmas kid crafts! One of my favorite types of holiday kid crafts are ornaments. There is something so special about pulling out handmade ornaments each year to see those little creations made by your kids! This year, we made these darling snow globe ornaments. They are the perfect Christmas kid craft! They would be so fun to do as a craft in a classroom Christmas party too.

How to Make Snow Globe Ornaments for Kids
First, cut out a piece of paper that will fit inside the cup. A trapezoid shape works perfectly in these types of cups.
Next, let the kids decorate the trapezoid shaped paper however they want. They could draw on them, but we just went simple and had holiday stickers to stick onto the paper. Make sure both sides of the paper get decorated.
Trace the top of the cup on a piece of paper and cut out the circle.
Now, hot glue the bottom of the trapezoid shape to the middle of the circle paper. Hold it in place until the glue dries so that it will stay standing up.
Now, fill up the cup with faux snow. This is a favorite part for the kids to participate in. There isn’t any right answer of how much snow to put in. Just enough that it will work like a snow globe.
Put hot glue around the edge of the circle and place it on the rim of the cup. Make sure all of the edges are glued down really well, so you don’t have any snow spills!
Cut a piece of string or ribbon and tie it into a knot at the ends to create a circle. Glue the circle onto the top of your snow globe.
