How to Make a Snow Globe

Winter Wonderland Snow Globe

Make it snow all year long!

You will need:
  • one small glass jar

  • aluminum foil

  • a small evergreen branch

  • water

  • liquid dishwashing detergent

  • scissors

Here's what you do:
  1. Remove the labels from your jar.

  2. Cut the aluminum foil into teeny-tiny pieces. They will be your snowflakes. You will need enough pieces to cover the bottom of the jar.

  3. Put the foil pieces in the jar.

  4. Place the evergreen branch in the jar.

  5. Fill the jar to the top with water.

  6. Add one drop of dishwashing detergent to the water (it will keep the flakes from floating).

  7. Tightly screw on the lid.

To make it snow, turn your globe upside down and right side up again.
