Make A Swirling Snowstorm

Here’s an easy and fun winter craft for your kids!   

For your stormy winter wonderlands all you need are some screw-top jars, water, glycerine, glitter and a few toys. Add them together , and you have a perfect gift for all the movers and shakers you know.

 

What you need:

Water
Glycerine
Plastic Toy
Strong Glue
Glitter

Glycerine is a nontoxic liquid that can be bought in most pharmacies and craft stores. It slightly thickens the water so that your glitter-snow falls more slowly when you shake it. Use about one part glycerine to two parts water.

JAR TIP: Choose a small jar with a screw-top lid. You may want to test it  – you don’t want your snowstorms to leak!

GLUE TIP: To attach the toy, use a strong glue that seals even when in water. For an extra seal, add glue around the lid and inside the rim. This prevents leakage.

STEPS:

1 – Add glitter to glycerine

 

 

 

 

 

2 – Fill jar with water

 

 

 

 

 

3 – Stir well

 

 

 

 

 

4 – Glue down a plastic toy

 

 

 

 

 

5 – Screw the lid on tightly
