Here’s a simple and fun activity we did over the past weekend. It was Fathers’ Day last Sunday and we were all set to impress Daddy. With some inspiration from RedTedArt.com, we made our own snow globes for our dearest Daddy and the Grandpas. We hope Daddy would bring us to Sweden (or any where that snows during winter) for some real snowing fun someday! Daddy, pleassssseeeee! *executes puppy eyes*
|Here are the snow globes we mad. Ain’t they beautiful?|
Here’s a simple step-by-step to making snow globes at home.
You will need:
- Used glass bottles with lids
- Little figurines (that can fit into the glass bottle)
- Craft Glue
|We gathered little “strayed” figurines (that were otherwise laying down somewhere collecting dust)
and used glass bottles for this activity.
|Build a base for the the figurine by stacking buttons to you desired height,
then stick them together onto the bottle lid with craft glue.
|Sparkle some glitters into the glass bottles then fill it up with water and a few drops of glycerin.|
|Line the circumference of the glass bottle with craft glue and screw down the lid.|
|Fill the grab between bottle and lid, then stick ribbon around the bottle to cover up the gap. Leave it to dry and
tah-dahhhh! Turn it around and there you are, your very own homemade snow globe!
Good to know:
If you are wondering what type of craft glue to buy, go for water-proof glue that dries up clear. I would recommend Crafters Choice Craft Glue. You can go for hot glue gun or super glue. I won’t recommend super glue through, they don’t stick so well and it’s a pain to remove them from my fingers.
Very important note to parents: Never (with the capital “N”) leave young children alone to work with craft glue. Always keep the room well ventilated.
Where to buy Craft Glue in Singapore?
Spotlight or any scrapbook shop should have a good range of craft glue for selection.
Where to buy Glycerin in Singapore?
Any pharmacy should carry glycerin. I got mine from Guardian at about S$6.00.
