The Snow Globe Family

If you enjoy the bestselling author, Jane O'Connor (author of Fancy Nancy), then you'll have to check out a recent book that I shared with my girls. It is titled The Snow Globe Family. The uniqueness of the story, quickly held our interest and it was fun to imagine life as a little person in a snow globe. The girls played with their own snow globes before and after the story and enjoyed pretending that their characters inside their own snow globes were real.

As a follow up, create a paper snow globe with your child. Cut out a large circle from white construction paper.

Have your child draw and color a scene in their snow globe.
Add white glitter glue to make the snowflakes and snow in the globe shimmer.

Another activity that my daughter did in preschool was make her own miniature snow globe.

I remember one year making snow globes with my Kindergarten class using directions that involved crumbled white eggshell as the snow. Ugh! Nothing worse than the smell of 26 eggs being crumbled by just as many 5 year olds! I like your suggestion of glitter instead!
