Wow! It is exciting to get to share a fun project with the Ucreate with Kids readers! I'm Jill from Sandy Toes and Popsicles. I love Ucreate with Kids blog....so many fun things to keep the kiddies entertained, and am so thankful for the inspiration. Thanks for having me over here!
Today I wanted to share how to make Baby Food Snow Globes. They are definitely a favorite project in our house...and with a seven month old baby, I am always looking for ways to use my leftover baby food jars.
• Baby food jars, (or any small jar for that matter)
• Plastic toys that will fit into your jar (I used small Christmas Ornaments)
• Silicone Sealant
• Glue Gun
Wash and dry your jar completely, including the lid.
Attach figurine to the inside of jar lid using glue gun. Use your imagination, but make sure whatever you use is waterproof and won't dissolve. (tip: If you are using a small object, it's a good idea to build up the lid with extra hot glue or polymer clay so the object will appear taller.
Fill jar almost to the top with cold water. Then sprinkle some glitter, or “ snow” into water.
Line inside lip of the lid with silicone sealant (or hot glue if that is all you have). Then insert figurine in water and screw on lid. Do this over the sink, as the water overage will spill out. The higher you fill the jar, the less air bubbles will remain once you screw on the lid.
Dry off your snow globe completely. Apply a layer of hot glue or silicon sealant around the rim of the lid to seal shut. Let stand and dry overnight.
Shake your snow globe and enjoy!
