homemade snowglobes

Obviously you wouldn't want to eat these but my kids loved making them using old chicken bouillon jars that I'd been saving all year for this project and a few other items that are easy to find.  We made six snowglobes with the amount of glycerin you see above.

homemade snowglobes
a jar you'd like to recycle
figurines- easy to find at the dollar store!
1-2 teaspoons glycerine (found in the cake decorating part of the craft store)
a couple teaspoons glitter
hot glue

Glue your figurines into the bottom of a lid that tightly fits onto the coordinating jar, making sure to leave plenty of room for the jar to be screwed onto the lid.   While that cools, pour 1-2 teaspoons glycerine into the jar.  Add water until the jar is 1/4" from full.  Add glitter, as much as you'd like!  Screw the lid onto the jar as tightly as possible.  Shake and enjoy!

  1. What a fun project! I'm making my list and gathering supplies for our Christmas break days. I think the kids would have fun with this one! Thank you!
