Introduction: Glitter Globe
A very simple and fun craft to do with kids.
- One medium-sized Mason jar.
- Multiple different colored food dyes.
- Multiple different types of glitter.
- About half a container of clear glue.
Step 1: Gather Supplies!
Once you have all of your supplies, decide what colors you want to use for the dyes and glitter.
Some suggestions are; dark green water, with gold glitter, blue water with white glitter, and mustard color with silver and blue glitter.
Step 2: Add Your Glitter!
Take your chosen glitter colors, and fill the jar with as much glitter you want. Normally, I fill mine about 1/3 of an inch, but this can be changed as you experiment.
Step 3: Add Water!
Now, fill your jar to 3/4 full.
Step 4: Add Color!
After that, add your desired colors into your jar, and watch the colors float down. Then, shake up the jar, combining the colors.
Step 5: Add Glue!
Now, fill up the rest of the jar with glue, but remember that the more glue you add, the slower it floats down.
Step 6: Finished!
Once you are satisfied with your creation, put on the lid, and screw on tight. Now, you are done! Shake to combine everything, then watch the glitter float down!
