Snow Globes

Today’s art was making snow globes! 

We used baby food jars.  sticking  little plastic animals, hearts, leaves, people, and shells to the lid with waterproof clay and a hot glue gun.  Then we filled up the jars with cold water and glitter before screwing the lids on.  Don’t forget to seal the crack between the lid and jar after you put the lid on or it could leak!    we opted not to use mineral oil in the jars because it was just a mess.  we decorated the lids with felt and trim to hide the baby food company’s name.  (not all the kids finished decorating it today)

leave the jars right side up for 24 hours to make sure the glue is dried completely. 

 

didn’t the kids do a great job!?  

 

 

these ones belong to my kids.
