We moved to California from Massachusetts over five years ago, and the snow is still something the kids really miss. The kids love reading snow-themed books like The Snowy Day. We created this craft to bring a little bit of snow to our California Christmas tree. It’s one of the “fancier” of our handmade tree ornaments, along with this beautiful baby handprint ornament.

This ornament is really easy to make! Here’s what you need:
A funnel is also useful, although you can used a rolled-up sheet of plain paper.
How to Make a Snow Ornament
- Remove the top of your ornament.
- Pour in some of the Sparkling Snow. We find the ornament looks best if it is one third to one half full of snow.
- Replace the lid.
- Attach an ornament hook or ribbon.
- Add your ornament to the tree.
These snow ornaments were super fast to make. We think they would work well as as class Christmas craft or any other kind of group Christmas craft.
More Snow Picture Books for Kids
This ornament pairs beautifully with any snow themed picture book for kids. Here are a few of my favorites:
