Kids Crafts That Make Great Gifts


2. Snow Globes

A snow globe is a sweet keepsake that can be kept on a desk or shelf all year long and can easily be personalized. Using any jar that seals tightly, select small or meaningful plastic objects (favorite toys, animals, and trees are good options) and affix them to the underside of the lid using super glue. Let the glue dry completely. Then fill the jar with water, as much glitter as you like, and a few drops of glycerin, and put the lid on the jar. Flip it over and you have a charming snow globe.
