Glitter Snow Globe

Making your own glitter snow globes is loads of fun and easy to do. Preschoolers will be fascinated with their finished creation.

What you Need to Make a Glitter Snow Globe

  • Empty watertight glass jar – tall ones with minimal decoration on the glass work best
  • Plastic figurine – tall ones look best
  • Cooled boiled water
  • Glycerine
  • Glitter
  • Super glue

How to Make a Glitter Snow Globe

  • Glue a plastic figurine (or anything waterproof) onto a jam jar lid using super glue. Make sure an adult does the super gluing step.

  • Add about a teaspoon of glitter in the jar.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of glycerine to a cup of cooled boiled water. The glycerine thickens the water and makes the glitter float slowly.

  • Add the glycerine and water mix to the jar, filling it up to the top.
  • Screw the lid with the figurine onto the jar.

  • Shake and enjoy watching your snowstorm glitter globe.

We tried a very small jar and a larger one. The tall jar worked much better as the glitter took much longer to float down after shaking.
