Quick Craft: Magical Mason Jar Snowglobe

by Shelby Smith

Recently, I was going through some of my old arts and crafts creations at home, and I came across this magical mason jar snowglobe!  This super-simple sensory art project is fun for all ages and skill levels, and can be made with a combination of crafting, recyclable, and household materials.

 
The must-have items are:
 
  • water
  • a glass or clear plastic container with a water-tight lid

 

For the inside, you can use a variety of crafting, recyclable, and household items such as:

  • buttons
  • beads
  • glitter
  • gemstones
  • sequins
  • tin foil
  • nuts & bolts
  • broken jewelry
  • small or broken toys
  • cut-up candy wrappers (particularly coloured foil wrappers!)
  • old keys
  • paperclips
  • bottle caps
  • and so much more!

 

Simply add the items to your clear container, fill with water, close the lid tightly, and shake to reveal the magic!
 

Did you know?

In 1870 the Wolseley Expedition went through this area on route to the Red River Valley. Major General Garnet Wolseley got impatient and set out to cross the lake in a storm.  He got lost on the Lake of the Woods for two whole days!
