Snowglobes

For Aubrey's kindergarten class party we made melted snowmen snow globes.
Here are some of the finished snowmen.

This close up shot kind of shows the "parts" at the bottom.
A snow globe is a tricky thing to photograph, sorry.

We rounded up baby food jars and filled them with distilled water, 1/8tsp glycerin, 1/2 tsp glitter (crystal colored w/ a dash of silver).

We also added two googly eyes, carrot nose (carrot- shaped craft buttons found at Michael's), pompoms and beads for the mouth & buttons. I made little fleece hats for the top of the jar.
(7 inch piece of fleece, sewn in a tube, cut into 5 inch lengths, top tied with embroidery floss)
We attached this poem to the outside of the jars where the sticky was left from the label.
"I made a little snowman,
As perfect as can be.
I thought I'd keep him in my room
And keep him warm like me.
But when I woke next morning
My mind was in a muddle.
He's run away, I don't know why
And left me with a puddle."

Lydia was a good helper, so I made her a hat that matched the snowmen!
