Good evening Scientists! Today we created our own snow globe. It was easy and fun to do, help your little scientist make one too.
Small Jar or Bottle With Water Tight Seal (plastic is best so you don’t have to worry about broken glass. We used a small plastic jar from the dollar store)
Funnel (For glitter)
Light Corn Syrup
Superglue (Adults Only, We used Gorilla glue gel)
Small Plastic Toy or Plastic Decoration
Optional: Decorations for the outside of the snow globe
**Please fully supervise your child at all times. Never eat or drink in a lab setting. Glass is sharp and dangerous if broken take care when handling. Store out of reach of children and pets**
- Make sure that your chosen jar will be water tight by filling with water and shaking around. Dry completely before moving to the next step. ADULTS ONLY FOR THIS Part: Superglue the toy or decoration to the inside lid of your container. Let dry completely without touching the glue.
- Add water to fill the jar about 3/4 of the way up.
- Add a squeeze of light corn syrup to the jar.
- Add the desired amount of glitter. (Our little scientist emptied the whole bottle so ours has EXTRA)
The water and corn syrup mixture is able to slow down the effects of gravity on the glitter after you shake up your snow globe. Gravity is the force that pulls an object to the biggest object near it, here on Earth it is the planet itself.
