Making Snowglobes

Christmas Snowglobe Christmas Crafts Creating snow globes can be a fun family activity or an individual project. You may use them as gifts or for personal enjoyment. Let the kids be creative in choosing or making a scene for inside the snow globe. Small Christmas items; such as a skater, skier, church, mailbox, Santa Claus, Snowman, Christmas Decoration, or animals are suggestions.

Items needed: Crushed eggshell for the snow.

Mineral or baby oil.

A clear glass jar with a tight fitting lid. (Small round jars like marinated artichokes or pimientos are packed in work quite well.
Craft stores sometimes have a little taller jar with the same tight fitting lid for about $2.

Paint for the lid. Acrylic Paint works well.

Glue or a glue gun.

Hard boil an egg (salt in the water makes them easier to peel). Cool the egg in cold water before removing the shell. Peel the thin layer carefully from inside the shell. This prevents the shell from floating. Crush the shell well to get small pieces. Use a rolling pin or a pestle and small bowl which is also used for grinding spices.

Clean the jar and lid thoroughly and dry well. Give the outside of the lid a couple coats of paint, letting it dry well between coats. Take a bit of fine sandpaper and lightly sand the inside of the lid so the scene will attach well. Glue your scene to the inside of the lid and let dry for several hours. Be sure to glue the scene so it will fit into the jar opening and the lid will close.

Place the jar on a double layer of paper towel and add about Ĺ tsp. of crushed eggshell. Pour in the oil, filling to the top, leaving enough space for the scene. If you donít fill it enough you will have an air bubble inside. Some oil will spill over which isnít a problem. Just wash the globe with dish soap and warm water and dry well. Twist the lid on tight! Shake well and enjoy.

* Glitter can be used instead of eggshell for the snow. Be sure to get the heavier glitter as the light weight variety will not fall like snow but float on top of the oil like a cloud.

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.
