Method
Glue a plastic figurine (or anything waterproof) onto a jam jar lid using super glue. Make sure an adult does the super gluing step.

Add about a teaspoon of glitter in the jar

Add 2 teaspoons of glycerine to a cup of cooled boiled water. The glycerine thickens the water and makes the glitter float slowly.

Add the glycerine and water mix to the jar, filling it up to the top.
Screw the lid with the figurine onto the jar.

We tried a very small jar and a larger one. The tall jar worked much better as the glitter took much longer to float down after shaking.

The small jar worked fine but wasn't as impressive as the taller jar as there wasn't as much room for the glitter to swirl around
