Resident Snow Globes

Resident Snow Globes

Happy Friday!! You’re going to love this fun, interactive craft!

You Will Need:

  • Printed Photo of you, your pet, or whatever you’d like in your snow globe.
  • Packing tape (Laminating Machine if you have one)
  • Smooth Surface Mason Jars
  • Clear Glue
  • Glitter
  • Confetti
  • Scissors
  • E6000

To Begin:

  1. First I printed out a picture of me front and back (the back-side mirrored) then cut to shape.
  2. For this next step, you can either laminate your cut-outs or do what we did and used packing tape!
  3. Lay your cut-out on a flat surface. With a few pieces of tape as long or wide as you need, lay them as flat as possible to the cut-out and table.
  4. Peel your cut-out up and flip it over.
  5. Next, repeat another layer of packing tape on the opposite side.
  6. You should be left with a sturdy, water-resistant image. Trim any excess tape off the cut-out.
  7. Grab your mason jar, fit your image inside of your jar and tape your image to the lip of the jar. Be sure some of the tape is wrapped around the outer lip so when the lid is screwed on it stays put.
  8. Next, fill the mason jar less than a third of the way with clear glue.
  9. Add glitter and confetti to your liking. Next, fill with water to the neck of the jar.
  10. Secure the lid, shake well, done!
  11. Once your jar is to your liking, glue the lid shut using industrial glue. I like to use E6000.
  12. Enjoy!!

World Ocean’s Day Sensory Bottles

It’s DIY Friday! This week we’ll be following a super cute, easy and satisfying tutorial on how to make your very own Sensory Water Bottle! World Ocean’s Day is rounding the corner and what cuter way to celebrate than by creating our very own ocean-in-a-bottle!

Sensory Water Bottle Tutorial

You Will Need:

  • Water bottle with lid
  • Glitter Glue
  • Glitter
  • Sequins
  • Adhesive Foam Stars
  • Water
  • Food Coloring
  • Stirring Stick

To Begin:

  1. Start with a clean, plastic water bottle with a screw-on lid.
  2. We’ve experimented with all types of glue, but glitter glue gives the best result. Squeeze a whole bottle of glitter glue into your bottle.
  3. Top it off with any type of water – we had boxed water on hand.
  4. Add as much and however many colors or textures of glitter you want.
  5. Add sequins if you wish.
  6. Add a drop of whatever color food coloring you like (preferably the same color as the glitter glue.) We used teal. Try not to add too much, otherwise, you won’t be able to see what’s happening in your bottle.
  7. Add floating objects of your choice. We took adhesive foam stars, stuck them back-to-back, then put them in our bottle.
  8. Once everything has been added, seal your bottle tightly with the lid and shake vigorously.
  9. When you are happy with your sensory water bottle, you can glue the lid shut.
  10. Shake and enjoy!
