This Christmas craft primary resource gives children the opportunity to make their own snow globes, which can be given as gifts to friends and family as a Christmas present.

Pupils will be challenged to follow instructions to make their own snow globe and experiment with their own creative ideas and designs. They will also get four recommendations of fun, festive games to play over the Christmas period.

The teaching resource can be used as a printed handout for instruction in class time, or for display on the interactive whiteboard.

Activity: Ask the children to complete the step-by-step instructions, experimenting with their own designs and style. They can get creative with different coloured glitter and with their chosen toy to include. They could also colour a background and stick it to the back of the outside of their snow globe.
