Snow Globe Drawing Prompts

Post by contributing writer Kim of Life Over C’s


Do your kids have a fascination with snow globes like mine do? My children are drawn to snow globes no matter the theme or the weather outside. They love to shake them and watch as the “snowflakes” fall to the ground. These snow globe drawing prompts are perfect for kids who are in love with the whimsical scenes.




The snow globe drawing prompts are extremely low-prep. Just print & go! With four different starter scenes, your kids have endless opportunities to create their own beautiful snow globe worlds.


You can use the snowman, Christmas tree or snowing prompts to create winter scenes or use the plain snow globe to draw a world where it’s always summer.




I love listening to my girls describe the scenes that they draw. There is always a imaginary world that we only catch a glimpse of through their artwork. Behind that simple drawing is a character that is the hero of the day.


I also love having them tell me why they picked a certain color. These days every color has significance and reminds them of another great story. My girls are great at “chasing rabbits” one thing reminds them of another and then another…




Because the snow globes are open-ended they are great for kids of all ages and abilities. While the big kids might relate their snowman to Frosty the Snowman from watching the movie in years past, my littlest one wanted a picture of Chilly from her favorite cartoon.




No matter what they come up with, their drawings are meant to be treasured! If you can’t save their artwork (we can’t save everything!) take a moment a snap a picture, so that you can see, years from now, the fantastic imaginations that they shared with you.


For older children, encourage them to write a story to go along with their snow globe!
