Waterless homemade snow globesSupplies needed to make your own homemade snow globes:

IMG_5890I let my kids dive right into the supplies I received from Consumer Crafts.  They would decide on the layout for the snow globes then I just hot glued the creations on the inside of the jar lids.  Place a little snow inside the jar itself.  If you want any snow to stay behind while shaking, hot glue it down as well.  My son wanted this little wagon to stay full of snow.

IMG_5920I can’t tell you which is my favorite!  They are all adorable and we had so much fun making them.

IMG_5925This is a craft for all ages — from toddler to adult.  Maybe even get grandma in on the fun.

IMG_5928I spread these out on our winter mantle.  This allows them to be displayed plus be handy to give each of them a good shake on occasion.

IMG_5932Yes, these are equally as fun after they are completed.

IMG_5933I hope you all will make some waterless snow globes with your kids this winter season!

    I love these Angie!! I’ve been wanting to make a version of these for awhile now, but haven’t been able to find the little animals to go in them! I’m so glad you posted this, now I know where to get them! Love the Snowmen too.
