We ended up running out of black pipe cleaners it was so popular. The idea is from Parents. I know everyone likes a step by step tutorial so here it is: I did find "shooter" glasses at the Dollar Store so we used these instead. I made a template for the kids to follow.
Then using pinking shears or decorative paper cutters, cut a nice scalloped edge all the way around. Now the original instructions said to pierce the bottom of the cup with a tack, Thread your pony bead with your hanging thread and tie in a knot to make a loop.
Glue directly to the top of your cup with tacky glue. While it is drying you can work on the penguins. Take an orange pipe cleaner and cut in half. Now bend this in half. Twist a bit together leaving the ends separate. These are your penguin feet.
Now take a full black pipe cleaner and wrap around a pencil nice and tight. When you slide it off it should look like this. Insert the orange pipe cleaner inside the black coil.
About two coils from the top bend your orange pipe cleaner so it sticks out. This is your beak and those 2 coils at the top is the top of the head. Take your white felt and cut a little oval.
Glue on the belly of your penguin. The original instructions used a white pipe cleaner but I found it too fussy to stay in place. Glue on some eyes. Make a second penguin a bit smaller than the first.
I also used smaller eyes on this one. Now the original ornament had a North Pole sign with the penguins but with these "shooter" cups I did not have the space for it. Glue your penguins to the cardstock circle. I have mine close together because of the size of the cup.
Add some loose sequins on the paper. I didn't glue these down as I wanted it to be more like a snow globe. Run a bead of glue all around the bottom edge of the cup. Put into place over the penguins. The original instructions called for a silver pipe cleaner around the bottom.
I find those metallic pipe cleaners difficult to glue for kids so we used a white pipe cleaner.
Measure how long you need then cut to size, leave a little extra to twist together in a circle. Run some glue around the base of the cup and then slide the pipe cleaner down.
We used some glitter glue to add some sparkle to the pipe cleaner.Creating a painted snow globe when you live in place that gets very little snow seemed like a great idea to me. My son just loves snow and snow globes. He loves to turn my mother in law’s snow globe over to make the tiny white specks inside start to swirl around and around.

Finally we have made some. The best part about these snow globes is that they give you the perfect opportunity to get rid of some of the pesky plastic. A fun and effective way to teach children how to create artwork in the style of master artist Vincent Van Gogh.
The templates make it simple for all ages to get started, while the open ended instructions allow for freedom to stay unique. Jan 08, · Snow globe postcards.
I displayed their writing by giving each student a sheet of bright A4 paper with a small peg hot glue gunned onto it- this worked really well as the kids could take their postcards off to read each others or show their parents.
