Making A Snow Globe

January 23, 2009

Materials we used:
clean washed jar(we used a plastic peanut butter and jelly jar)
forest clay or some type of small recycled container
figurine and extra decorations...make sure you use items that are water resistant
hot glue gun and hot glue

You could use florist clay on the bottom to build up the spot where you will be placing your figurine. We recycled a small Play-Doh container attaching it to the top w/ hot glue.

Before glueing figurine place the jar on top of figurine to make sure it looks the way you desire.
Attach your figurine to the lid and any other greenery or decorative items with a hot glue gun. We kept ours simple.

Add water to within 1/2" from the top.

Add one teaspoon of glitter to the water.

Place the lid inside the jar and screw on tightly.

Hot glue around the lid . I used a generous amount to stop the water from leaking out.

In hindsight, I didn't need anything for the doll to stand on. She was tall enough. We also used two teaspons of glitter. One was probably good enough. Meara likes it...and seeing her smile makes my heart melt, so it's ok! ;-)
