Make a snowstorm in a jar with this easy craft. Give one as a gift with your Winter Wonderland Cookies to teachers and friends. Make a winter scene with a snowman or small plastic pine trees.
- Find a small wintry toy or ornament.
- Glue it to the inside lid of a baby-food or other small jar (you can use glue dots).
- Fill the jar with water.
- Add a few pinches of glitter.
- Screw on the lid tightly.
- Shake up a snowstorm!
A few things to watch:
- Make certain not to get things too close to the edges or the lid won’t close tightly enough for a good seal – we want to be sure they don’t leak.
- If you want your snow glitter to settle more slowly and longer lasting snowstorms, add a little glycerin.
- Be sure everything you put in the tiny winter scene is water-proof so things don’t fall apart in there.
