Empty watertight glass jar - tall ones with minimal decoration on the glass work best
Plastic figurine - tall ones look best
Cooled boiled water
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.
The glycerine thickens the water
Add the glycerine and water mix to the jar, filling it up to the top.
Screw the lid with the figurine onto the jar.
Shake and enjoy watching your snowstorm glitter globe.
Penguin in a snowstorm
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
