A homemade snow globe is a childhood must! The best part about these snow globes is that they give you the perfect opportunity to get rid of some of those pesky plastic figurines lying around the house. Another idea is to use LEGOs -- if your child can part with them!

Materials

Directions

1 - Ask your child if he can find the perfect plastic figurine or Lego piece to use in his snow globe. No sense in buying a new one, if there’s already something at home!
2 - Put glue on the inside of the jar’s lid. Place and stick your child’s plastic figurine on it.
