Plastic Pot Snow Globe

This is a nice craft to use with either your own family or with a small Children’s group – ensure you gain parent / guardian permission to take and print photos of Children.

You will need:

  • Clear recycled plastic yoghurt pots, cups or similar.
  • Tissue paper
  • Glitter (environmentally friendly of course 🙂 )
  • Glue (ideally a hot glue gun)
  • Pipe cleaners.
  • Card


  1. Take photo’s of the children, print them – making sure the image will be small enough to fit inside the cup.
  2. Stick the image to card and cut the image out removing all background.
  3. Fold the bottom of the image so it stands up.
  4. Taking some card, draw around the top of the pot / cup and working a little wider than your drawn circle cut it out.
  5. Stick the photo image in the centre of the card circle
  6. Spread stick glue over the card and cover with glitter.
  7. Tear up some toilet tissue paper into really tiny pieces and mix in some glitter placing some of it into the bottom of the pot / cup. Don’t overfill otherwise you won’t see the photo 🙂
  8. Using strong glue / hot glue gun – glue the top of the pot / cup and place the card with the image going inside the cup so that the card base is now stuck to the rim of the pot / cup.
  9. Allow to dry then shake away   🙂
