For a couple of years, we made crayon directed drawings of snowmen (or penguins for some students) and did a white wash (white paint watered down that will resist the crayon drawing--used for snow) over it. One year since I did a spray snow (store-bought snow intended for decorating windows) over this as well, just to change it up. One of my colleagues had this great idea to make these snowmen creations into snow globes. So. . .here is how I did it this time around.
(Please take note: at the grade one level, it might be wise to have parent helpers around or have the time to work one-on-one with each student if they are going to be involved in the wrapping of the plastic!)
Above is the finished globe. Below are a few of the finished ball part of the globes. You can kind of see and example of the drawings and the "wash" in this photo.
