Here are some super cute snow-globe illustrations created by Grade 1 students.
I provided each student with a large circle drawn on regular white drawing paper. We brainstormed ideas of things they might see inside a snow-globe. Even though students contributed a wide variety of ideas, we still ended up with loads of snowmen ;) lol- easy to draw, I suppose...
I've also taught a slightly different snow-globe project with older students (Grade 6).

So they started out by drawing their picture in pencil first.Then they coloured in their picture using coloured pencils. They coloured everything except the snow (leave white obviously) and the sky.
For the sky, just for something a little different, we used watercolor pencils.
Let these dry and then cut them out. Then students cut out a slightly large circle out of blue or turquoise construction paper and glued the white snow-globe onto it. Then they cut out a black triangle for a simple base and glued that behind. The last step was to dip the end of a thin paintbrush into white paint, and 'dab' snowflakes all over their picture.
I threw on some white ultra-fine glitter over the wet paint for added SPARKLE!!!
