Make your own snow globe

Make your own snow globe

What is it about a snow globe that makes them so magical? Is it because they may be souvenirs from a far away place or perhaps reminds us of what winter is like in the northern hemisphere? Whatever the reason, your kids can make a magical gift to give to someone. Here's how.

What you need:

  • small jar (a jam jar is perfect)
  • small ornament or toys
  • beads or buttons
  • glitter
  • water
  • super glue or a hot glue gun
  • ribbon

Number of players:


Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2. Take the lid off the jar and set it on the table, inside facing up. Glue your ornament and beads, buttons or any other embellishments to the lid.

Step 3. Fill the jar with water and sprinkle some glitter into the water.

Step 4. Once the ornament is dry, screw the lid back on, making sure it is very tight. Turn it up the right way. Shake it to test it out (How cool is a snow globe!).

Step 5. Hot glue or tie some ribbon around the top and bottom to decorate and make it even more special as a gift.
