How to Create a Magical Christmas Snow Globe
Time: 5 minutes, excluding waiting time.
Christmas isn’t just a day – it’s a season. And if you want to make the most out of this festive time with the little ones, try preparing some crafts you can do together. Just remember that it’s not about making decorations as much as it’s about making memories. So it’s okay to keep the crafts easy, regardless of your children’s skill level.
The instructions below are for a Christmas tree snow globe, but feel free to replace the tree figurine with anything else. Santa, Rudolph or Christmas ornaments work well. There’s a good chance you’ll find something around the house, but you can also browse the shelves of your local craft store for ideas.

If you’re like most of us, you may be embarrassed to admit how many hours of entertainment you’d get out of shaking a snow globe. The good news is that you can keep your secret safe. There are tons of other ways you can use your new snow globe. For example, have you ever thought of using one as a timer? Sure, the timing isn’t precise, but that’s part of the allure. It could be a fun game to play with the kids. Try standing still or keeping quiet until the last piece of glitter has dropped. Snow globes also make great gifts and beautiful additions to a holiday centerpiece.
PRO TIP: If you’re planning to use the snow globe as a centerpiece or to decorate a mantle, consider varying the jar heights and including different types of figurines to add interest.
