It’s Christmas Week on the Blog!
I’m going a bit wild with Christmas Table decorations at the moment. I like variety in the home, and with the table decorations, I can mix it up every couple of days. We’ve did the White Christmas in a Jar, and candles in jars, and now it’s time for something interactive and fun for the kids. So, I made a sort-of snow globe feature using a regular kitchen glass, glitter and a Christmas figurine.
Small figurine made of glass or ceramic (or heavy plastic sometimes works too)
–Most discount stores have cute ceramic figurines for a few dollars or I have used suitable Christmas decorations before.
Clear glass tumbler
Temporary Snow Globes
Place the figurine in a clear glass, fill with water and add a little glitter.
We had this on the table for 4 days, and the kids enjoyed stirring up the glitter everyday. Glitter did get on their hands, but washes off easily, and it’s pretty too. Just a bit of sparkle, sparkle. You can make permanent snow globes with the same materials (plus a jar). Here’s a good tutorial here: DIY Snow Globe.
