This cool Christmas craft teaches you how to make a snow globe for your bedroom! What’s more, it’s a fab way to up-cycle used jars and decorations – so you’ll be helping look after the environment, too. Awesome!


How to make a snow globe

What you’ll need…

Clean empty jar
Super glue (and an adult!)
Plastic or ceramic toys or cake decorations*
Water
Glitter (biodegradable is best!)
Glycerin (available from chemists)

*Use old toys/decorations instead of buying new ones. And make sure they fit inside the jar before you start!


Step 1

Unscrew the lid of your jar and ask an adult to carefully glue the toy to its inside, following the instructions on the glue packet.


Step 2

While it’s drying, fill the jar almost to the top with water.


Step 3

Add a dash of glycerin to the water and a pinch or two of glitter. The glycerin makes the water gloopy so the glitter falls slower – like snow. Give it a stir.


Step 4

Tightly screw the lid back on the jar. Check the water level – you may need to add more.


Step 5

Flip the jar over and give it a shake!


TOP TIP!
Make a few snow globes and give them as gifts to your friends!
