Snow Globe

snowklafe.gifAge: Kindergarten and up
Time: An hour or more
Type of activity: Arts and Crafts

Materials Needed:
· Glass jar with lid (make sure the jar is large enough to fit your hands inside.)
· Floral clay
· Small waterproof figures for the snow globe (plastic house, buildings, trees, people...)
· "Snow" (glitter, small plastic stars or flowers, etc.)
· Hot glue gun
· Waterproof craft glue
· Ribbon, optional
· Paintbrush and paint, optional

What to do:

Step One: Wash the jar well before beginning this project.

Step Two: Apply a thin layer of floral clay to the inside of the lid. Be sure to leave the edges of the lid free of clay so you can screw the lid onto the jar.

Step Three: Think about where you'd like your figures to be, then using the craft glue, secure the figures to the lid.

Step Four: Add a layer of "snow" to the bottom of the jar.

Step Five: Fill the jar with cold water to within 1/2 inch of top.

Step Six: Apply a thin layer of hot glue around the inside edge of the jar, and carefully screw the lid in place.

Step Seven: Let the jar sit for several hours while the glue bonds.

Step Eight: Paint a decoration on the lid, or simply glue a piece of ribbon around the edge.

Flip the snowglobe so that it sits on its lid -- then shake things up to see the snow!
