Craft Corner: How to Make a Homemade Snow Globe

A seasonal craft kids will love

By Macaroni KID February 15, 2024

Kids love snow globes — watching the magic of the little world inside and the sparkling snow as it slowly twirls through the water inside. 

But what if they could make their own? That would really bring the magic alive! Here is how your kids can make their very own snow globe at home — and you probably already have all the supplies you need right on hand!

What You Need:

  • Cleaned wide-mouth glass jar with lid
  • Glitter
  • Small figurine
  • Hot glue gun
  • Water

What You Do:

  1. Choose a small figurine that will fit easily inside the jar.
  2. Glue the figurine to the inside of the lid.
  3. Fill the jar with water and sprinkle in glitter.
  4. Screw on the lid tightly (you can apply some hot glue to the rim before closing to ensure a water-tight seal).
  5. Turn upside down, shake up your wintry scene, and watch the magic happen!
