When is the right time to start the Christmas spirit and leave a trail of glittery mess all across the house. So I came up with two activities you can give a go on your own or with older children, whilst watching the cold days draw closer.


Snow globes!

What you will need:
  • Jar with closable lid (the larger baby food jars are quite good for this, or even hotdog jars)
  • Water
  • Glitter
  • Embellishments (like little baubles)
  • Figurine
  • Ribbon
  • Superglue

How to do it:
  1. Make sure the jar is washed and dried.
  2. Glue the figurine to the bottom of the lid (making sure the jar can still fit on)
  3. In the Jar put a couple of small baubles (if you have a bigger jar), Glitter, and then add water.
  4. Flip of the lid and attach to the jar (glue maybe wanted to ensure tight sill)
  5. Add the ribbon round the lid of the jar to make it look a little prettier.
For children why not make some winter dry or wet sensory bottles, with baubles, pine cones and 'snow' (glitter)

What you will need:
  • See through Plastic bottles / Jars (the bigger the opening the better)
  • Pine Cones
  • Glitter
  • Baby Oil / Corn Syrup
  • Little Baubles
  • Cotton Wool

How to do it: 
  1. Fill the bottle with how ever much glitter you wish to have.
  2. Add several spoonfuls of the oil or syrup.
  3. Fill the bottle 3/4 way full with water.
  4. Screw on lid and ensure it is tightly closed (possibly with glue) before letting child play.

For the dry bottles simply put the materials into the bottles/jars (either mix it up of keep in separate containers) and once again make sure it is closed tightly.
