How to make a photo snow globe craft using our snow globe template:

STEP 1: Prepare your supplies

Before you get started, make sure to prepare your supplies so they're ready to go. Download and print the snow globe template as well as your child's photo. You can find the template by scrolling down below. When selecting your child's photo, try to use a full-length image for best results.

You could even ask older children to pose for their photographs. Could they pretend to throw a snowball or pretend they are trapped in the snow globe? If you don't have a photograph you could draw a picture as an alternative. 

STEP 2: Paint snow globe template

To get started, paint the sky of your snow globe template with blue watercolours and set it aside to dry.

After the blue paint dries, invite your toddler to blot the page with white paint using Q-Tips or their fingers. These will resemble the snowflakes in the snow globe. Set it aside to dry.
