How to Make a Snow Globe

How to Make a Snow Globe
Those delightful balls of water and snow! Now you can make your own.

Things You’ll Need:

Use a clean glass jar with a lid.
Choose a clean object to put inside the globe, or make your own. Plastic, aluminum or baked polymer clay are ideal for wet environments.
Hot-glue the object to the inside of the lid.
Boil two to three eggs and peel the shells off.
Use tweezers to remove the skin that sticks to the insides of the shells. That skin will float in your globe if you don't remove it.
Crush the shells to form snow and put it in the jar.
Fill the jar with mineral oil. Allow room for the object, which will displace some of the oil.
Squeeze a strip of silicone sealer around the threads of the lid.
Screw the lid on tight. You may want to paint it.

Here's a Holiday present from me to you. Click the link and ENJOY!

This sounds like a great project for my students (for next year, of course). Thank you!

Travis said...

That looks very cool!

Wishing you the joys of the season!

You are amazing, Mary. Thanks for this lesson. Merry Christmas.

Hi Mary, those are great! What grade do you teach? Oh yes, it was college.

I will show my grand daughter your home made ones tomorrow. She collects them from places she or family has visited.
Last June she had 23, search my blog for snow globe to see them.

Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year! (Hint, Sunday Mrs. Jim and I bought new swim suits.)

Great project that I should try with both my kiddos :)
Time for bonding and I'm sure the sense of achievement upon completing this project would be priceless! :P

Merry Christmas my dear friend! {HUGS}

I'll have to come back by and read further about the snow globe project. The boys would get a kick out of doing it.

Merry Christmas!

Dianne said...

what if you're one of those people whose lid is just not screwed on tight enough! ;)

Merry Christmas Mary

What an intriguing idea ... if I was still teaching kids, I'd definitely do this one. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Hugs and blessings,

Merry Christmas, Mary!

May your Christmas celebrations be filled with peace, hugs, good food, lovely prezzies, lots of warm fuzzy moments and all those marvellous things that make Christmas so special!

Dear teach Mary,
I'll have to save this recipe for next Advent's workshops.
Just ingenious.
I had a snowman in a square box 52 years ago. Still miss it.
Happy prolonged Christmas from Felisol
