January Winter Poem Activities

The inside of the snow globe can be any type of winter scene. The first example is a winter scene with a cut out picture of a student. The second example shows a little snowman with snow. Cotton balls, foam pieces, and photos can be used to give the globe a 3 dimensional look. The base of the snow globe can be used to write a story of the scene, write a poem, or a creative phrase.
On a sheet of construction paper trace the dessert plate. Inside the traced circle, create a winter scene. Once the winter scene is complete, glue or staple the clear dessert plate on top of the scene. Trace a trapezoid shape and glue it to the bottom of the snow globe. Add  your story, poem or creative phrase to the base.

Place a handprint of white paint on the left side of a blue or black sheet of construction paper. After the white paint dries, have the students decorate each finger as a snowman. For best results use fine point paint pins to create the snowmen. 
Add the 5 Snowmen poem to complete this adorable project!

These aren't just 5 snowmen,
As anyone can see.
I made them with my hand,
which is part of me.
Now you can look back and recall,
when my hand was just this small.
