How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe
As Kate so delicately alluded to earlier this week, I am somewhat of a holiday junkie. And Christmas is the holiday of all holidays for me. I decorated a week before Thanksgiving; yep, I’m one of those people. One of my most favorite holiday traditions as a child was our little family advent calendar and now that my kids are old enough to enjoy some fun and creative activities, I’ve filled up our little numbered stockings with slips of paper instead of candy. Well, slips of paper intermingled with candy. (There have been lots of questions about my advent calendar, and what I put into it. Snow globes are magical, whimsical, and fun. The first thing you need are jars, with nice snug lids. You can be creative with the items that go inside your snow globe, it’s just important that they are made of materials that won’t break down in water. Another really fun thing is to make your own little figurines with Sculpey Clay. You will create your scene on the underside of the jar lid.
