DIY Snow Globe Craft

Make your own snow globe with this DIY snow globe craft for kids of all ages! The best part? It's a dollar store craft!

When I was a little girl, I fell in love with snow globes after my dad brought home one from an international trip. The beautiful cherry wood base held a snow white castle surrounded by a delicate glass globe filled with water and "snow". It started my love for snow globes - no matter what time of year.

Now, two of my three children look forward to collecting new ones each year and have their own small collections. There's just something magical about a snow globe, especially around the Christmas holidays. Maybe that's why this inexpensive snow globe craft was such a draw. It's easy to make and, even more importantly, it's made from supplies found at the dollar store. That means we can make a whole village of snow globes for only a few dollars!

Since a hot glue gun is needed, be sure to supervise your kids if they'll be helping you. Have a great time and let us know how your snow globe craft turns out! Snap a picture and tag us in it on Instagram @MamaTeaches!
