Today we were in the Hallmark store and my son spent most of the time playing with the snow globes while I picked a card for someone. It suddenly dawned on me that I knew how to make a snow globe. I cant believe we have not done this already. Yes, its typically something I have made at Christmas (and totally cant wait to do it this year), but why not Halloween, too? So, I asked him if he would like to make one and he said "yes yes yes" while jumping up and down. We went to the dollar store next door and I let him choose items to put in his globes. It was actually a very involved experience as we had to talk extensively about what would fit and what wouldn't fit - using a jar from the store for comparison. He chose "pumpkin lady", a spider, and a skeleton (not seen here). When we got home, we made these. So cute and so fun! We have one more to make tomorrow.

THINGS YOU NEED
(I also used some curly black confetti for a more "Halloween" look)
Glue the figure to the lid of the jar and let dry (its important to wear sunglasses during this process - LOL)
Fill the jar with water....allow room for water displacement when you add the figure. Add a squirt of glycerine and the glitter (seen here).
Screw on the lid and shake shake shake!!
These are the globes we made today. The spider fit in with no glue because of its size....its just stuck in there pressing against the sides of the jar.

This is where HE chose to put them.....our entry hall table.
