Make Your Own Snow Globe

A great kids' craft project — easily assembled from      everyday items


Materials You'll Need: Small or medium clear jar, piece of Styrofoam, glitter, water, scissors, permanent marker, glue gun (needs adult supervision).

1. Ask the kids what they love about snowy days, and then ask them to each draw those things on a piece of Styrofoam. Keep the Styrofoam drawing narrow enough to fit through the mouth of the container when cut out but tall enough to be clearly visible through the jar.

2. Once the child’s Styrofoam drawing is finished, an adult can use the glue gun to attach it to the inside of the jar lid. Since the jar will be displayed upside down (with the lid end as the base), whatever is glued to the lid will become the centerpiece of the snow globe.

3. Fill the jar with water, leaving room for the Styrofoam.

4. Sprinkle in some glitter.

5. Twist on the lid, turn the jar over, and shake up your snow globe.
