Two Snow Globe Kids Crafts


Need a fun winter craft for two, three or four year-olds? 

Drying on a shelf outside of my pre-school classroom were these colorful tissue paper and white paint snow globes. They’d been made by older kids in the pre-school after-school program. I wanted to do something similar with my young two year-old’s, but they don’t know how to use scissors and aren’t ready for projects with several steps. I eliminated their need to use scissors and broke up the project into two days. It was a hit!

Here are instructions for both snow globes.

Happy creating, hon!

Snow Globes for 3 and 4 year-old’s


  • white and colored construction paper
  • a variety of tissue paper
  • white paint and paint brushes or crafts sticks

  • newspaper to protect work surfaces


  1. Cut globe of snow globe out of colored paper. Cut base of snow globe out of white construction paper.
  2. Cut tissue paper into small squares and rectangles.
  3. Using paint brush or craft sticks, drizzle white paint over globe.
  4. Glue tissue paper squares and rectangles on snow globe base.
  5. Glue painted and tissue papered snow globe pieces on contrasting construction paper.
