Day 2 - Snow Globe

With that gray chill in the air signaling possible snow, today was the perfect day to work on the snowglobe that I got for Sabrina a while ago. It's supposed to be a double sided snow globe picture frame, but we used it to inserted two small collages. Sabrina drew a snowman, a Christmas tree and a hat for the snowman, then I cut them all out. Then she glued them onto the contrasting paper, the tree for one side and the snowman for the other. Very fun, simple project with nice results... and if we tire of the design, we can start over as many times as we want this season. But for now, the globe sits on Sabrina's shelf and she keeps reaching for it from her bed to shake.

To tie off the theme, we read The Snowglobe Family, a book about a tiny family that lives in a snowglobe and the real family that owns the snowglobe. It's a great book with cute pictures that puts the whole family into the coziest of moods.
