Watch to learn how to make a snow globe at home!

This week’s curbside supply bags included the supplies to make a snow globe. If you weren’t able to get a supply bag this week, you can follow along with these instructions.


  • Small jar
  • A plastic figurine or Legos
  • Glycerin (optional: while it’s not necessary, it makes the glitter float better)
  • Glitter
  • Sequins
  • Water
  • Spoon
  • Super glue or a hot glue gun



  1. Ask your child if they can find the perfect plastic figurine or Lego piece to use in their snow globe. No sense in buying a new one, if there’s already something at home! 
  2. Put glue on the inside of the jar’s lid. Place and stick your child’s plastic figurine on it.
  3. Fill the jar with cold water.
  4. Add 1-2 teaspoons of glitter and stir.
  5. Add a few drops of glycerin.
  6. Screw the lid on the jar — you can glue it closed if you’re concerned about your child trying to open it.
  7. That’s it! Shake the jar or tip it upside down to make it “snow.”
