Winter is here! Teach your students about snow and penguins with these chilly and charming winter-themed crafts.
Snowman Snow Globe Craft Project
Incorporate snow and snowmen into a lesson about adjectives with this educational craft.
PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5
In this craft project, students will learn about the many different adjectives used to describe snow before creating and describing their own snowmen. This lesson can be used as a fun culmination of a unit on the parts of speech.
What You Need:
- 11- by 17-inch blue construction paper, one sheet per student
- 8.5- by 11-inch black construction paper, one sheet per student
- A classroom set of Adjective Snowflakes cutouts (PDF)
- A classroom set of A-Swirl in Adjectives Nameplates (PDF)
- A classroom set of Snowman Templates (PDF)
- Glue sticks
- Markers and crayons
What You Do:
- As a class, come up with a list of adjectives related to snow. Write these adjectives on a white board or easel so your students can refer back to the list.
- Distribute the snowflake cutouts to your students. Help each student record five additional adjectives, either new words or those from your class list, to describe snow and wintertime.
- Hand out a snowman template, an "A-Swirl in Adjectives" nameplate, and one sheet each of blue and black construction paper to every student.
- Have your students cut the blue construction paper into dome shapes, as shown. The blue construction paper will be the main part of a snowglobe shape.
- Have the students make a snowglobe base from the black construction paper and the "A-Swirl in Adjectives" nameplate, as shown.
- Have the students cut out the snowman template and glue it onto the blue construction paper.
- Have students cut out the snowflakes with their adjectives inside and glue these around the snowman.
- Once the glue is dry, your students can decorate their snowmen with scarves, buttons, and faces using the markers and crayons.
