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
- 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.
