My daughter has been asking for a snow globe for quite awhile now.For the longest time she didn’t know what it was called. She would just describe what she wanted in GREAT detail…until I figured out that she was talking about a snow globe. So, we decided to attempt to make our own. This is what we came up with.
All we did was use old baby food jars, glitter, and foam. I cut out the shapes for the snowman and the house and glued them together. The kids used permanent markers to draw on the snowman and the house. While they drew, I cut a circle from white foam to fit into the lid of the jar. I used a hot glue gun to glue the circle into the lid of the jar (so that the ground would be white…like snow.) Once they finished designing the snowman and the house, I glued them onto the circle inside the lid. Once dry, we added water and glitter to the jar and screwed on the lid…really, really tight. And, viola…your very own snow globe. Shake it watch the snow (glitter) swirl around!
