How to make your own homemade Snow Globe


How to make homemade Snow Globes!

A homemade snow globe is a childhood must! You can use some plastic figurines lying about the house, or even some old LEGO pieces.




  • small glass jar
  • a plastic figurine
  • glycerin (optional: while it’s not necessary, it makes the glitter float better)
  • glitter
  • water
  • glue (we used a hot glue gun, but superglue should work too)



  1. Decide what you would like to put in your snow globe. We used a some Christmas decorations
  2. Glue, place, and stick your plastic figurine to the inside of the jar lid
  3. Fill your jar with water and/or glycerin and add glitter—1-2 teaspoons.
  4. Screw the lid on the jar — glue it if you’re concerned about your child trying to open it
  5. Shake your jar or tip it upside down to make it snow!
