Snow globes are just so mesmerising, aren't they? Einstein E and Power P can spend minutes staring into the "snow" falling inside the globe. And they love this globe because - they made it themselves.
As we were making it, we were talking about winter and learned some interesting facts about snow:
- dry snow is ideal for skiing, but not for building a snowman
- Snowflakes that fall through a dry, cool atmosphere will be small and powdery and won't stick together.
- The snowflakes that form wet snow will have fallen through temperatures slightly warmer than 0 °C.
- a small glass jar
- a figurine or some natural material (we used little pine cones)
- glycerine or liquid glue
- a hot glue gun
Step 2Step 3.Step 4.
Add glue of glycerin.
Screw the lid on the jar, shake it and enjoy your winter magic.
