Snow Globes--- SUPER CUTE!!

Happy Monday to you! I am on top of the world after the last post... Thank you to all that commented and left such thoughtful words... I was able to remember why I spend the time (sometimes TOO MUCH time) sharing and writing about what I love.  As my son would say, you filled my heart with joy, so much that it is now overflowing! :)
 
The Winner is:
CHERIE!!
 
 

My favorite post was this one: http://toristeachertips.blogspot.com/2012/12/fun-and-easy-holiday-projectstreats.html because they were actually crafts that were easy enough (and cute enough!) for my young ones to make.
***However, if you left your email... you are a winner too!  I decided to send everyone that left a comment and email a little something to say, "thanks."  (add your email to your comment NOW if you didn't and I'll send it to you :)
 
 
If you missed out... check it out below:
 
It's my latest writing wheel!  It is a winter version and you can grab it by clicking
{HERE}
Right now there is only ONE wheel so it is priced well...however... if you grab this one now-- I will be adding MORE (valentines and presidents) and you will be able to download the added wheels for FREE!!   Don't worry, I will tell you when I've updated the file! :)
 
******
 
So, I mentioned that I wanted to share a SUPER FUN project that you can do when you return from your break!!
 
Snow globes!
 
Now, I cannot take any kind of credit for this adorable project.  My fab teammate made these when she taught kinders and she shared with us! (however, I'll show you how we spruced it up a bit).
 
Tell your kiddos that they will using their imaginations to think of what it would be like to live in a snow globe.
 
Then you have to start by taking pictures of your kids individually as they "act" like they are in a snow globe.  I had kids that were shivering, laying on the ground making a snow angel, throwing a snowball (wad of paper), one kid had fists in air and yelling like he wanted out (Um SO cute!!). OH and have them get in their full winter gear too (hat, gloves, scarf etc!)
 
Then print those and get a parent helper to cut them out completely around the shape of the child.  Print them large enough so that they will be visible in the globe. (4X6)
 
Next, have the child write using this paper:
 click to grab if you want a copy- sorry it's a scan so I hope the quality is ok
 
Then you will need a globe/base template- I am SO SO sorry that I don't have this to share at the moment- but if you trace the outside of a 7" plate and then include a bottom that you glue the above onto you are PERFECT!  (see samples below).  Pre- trace for the kids on different colors (I just did blues and purples). 
They cut out, glue their completed writing paper, and now decorate in the "globe" by adding themselves.  You can have them add snow by ripping the top of a 1/2 circle if you want.  They are C- U - T -E and would make a great display when you get back from break!
 
Here's how to do the rest:
 You will need "fake snow." It is on sale right now at Target!
 
 Put some "snow" on the center of the globe.
 
 Using a hot glue gun, cover the outside edge of a 7" clear plate with glue.  Then attach to the globe part.  The plates were bought at Party City.
 
Here are some finished ones:
 


 Hehe... she is catching snowflakes! :)
 
 I wish this wasn't so hard to see because it turned out SO cute... she is "shivering" but I love her boots and everything... it just fits so perfectly!
 
Yes, he is trying to get out! (in his writing he says...I don't want to get sick and I'm hungry-- ha!!)
 
 
When my co-worker taught K she made this project with just a snowman (pre-cut and kids added face etc) and they cut the snow globe out.  There was just a base- no writing.  The rest was the same.  So this project is very adaptable!
 
I hope this is a project that you can use in your classroom!
 
Remember... I love to hear that you stopped by~ Thanks!!
 
Have a GREAT New Years!

  9. Tori,
    Another seller on Pintrest here had the activity and others for sale before Christmas. She included a fill in the blank story with hers. I did this with my kids and they had a ball doing it. However, I am saving this idea which I like better actually. I think perhaps had they had the chance to actually act like they were in a snow globe their writing would have been better as well as original. Thank you for sharing.

  10. These look like so much fun to make. I am going to add it to my winter activities and show them a real one to compare before making theirs. I like the idea of adding the writing component to it as well. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

At such a time, one cannot argue over the fact that they did not sign up for this. Consequently, universities prepare the students to work with a greater knowledge of Petroleum Engineering.
