Summer Memories or Anytime Snow Globe

Ok Parents this is a great eco project for the kids.

I don't know about you but I always have jars hanging around the house that I don't know what to do with, and the kids love this project. For some extra fun, you can have them make these as gifts for birthdays and Christmas. It’s a great way to put old things to great use in a truly functional and delightful way. Have fun!

Your materials are:

  • Old mustard or pickle jar with it's original cover
  • Glitter and or Sparkles
  • Water
  • Oil (any really) or Glycerin
  • Hot glue
  • Contents: any little soft things that will float (any things you might normally throw out…beads, buttons, tiny lightweight toys)
  • Cloth napkin or newspaper for mess control

 

Step 1:
Use your cover as the bottom or base of your globe. Glue any object you want to remain stationary as the glitter and sparkles float around it.
Remember those giblets I wrote about in one of my recent posts and use a random plastic figure, fairy, figurine or mini sculpture and glue it on to the cap.

My kids and I used a tiny horse we got out of a gum ball machine as the stationary object. We also used sea glass, buttons, sand, glitter and coins.

Step 2:
Once the glued object has dried fill your jar with your junk and your glitter.

Step 3:
Fill the jar with a tablespoon of oil and the rest of the jar with water.

Step 4:
Finish the cap by putting glue around the rim which will act as a great water seal so that there are no open jar surprises or leaking globes.

Step 5:
Shake it baby shake it.
