How to Make Snow Globe Glitter

Save

The thing that makes a snow globe so great is the snow. But how does one make the snow-globe glitter that rains down on the people and places in the snow globe? It's a very simple process, and the items you need might surprise you.

Things You'll Need

  • Plastic sandwich bag
  • 3 white hard-boiled eggs
  • Rolling pin
  • Small bowl
  • Refrigerator
  • Cutting board
  • Peel the eggs and place the shells in the plastic bag.

  • Put the eggs in the bowl and place them in the refrigerator to be eaten later.

  • Seal the bag holding the shells and place it on the cutting board.

  • Roll over the shells with the rolling pin. Crush them into small pieces, but avoid crushing them into powder.

  • Open the bag and add the pieces of shell to the snow globe.

Tips & Warnings

  • When peeling the egg, rinse off the clear membrane that sometimes sticks to the shell. Leaving this on the shell will cause problems during the crushing step.
  • Do not use brown eggs for this craft project. No one likes to look at dirty snow.
  • Avoid placing the bag of ready-to-crush shells on anything other than a cutting board. The shells could scratch the surface of a counter.
