Christmas Snowglobes (Advent #15)
Seren has had two snow globes gifted to her in her life. Both have ended up smashed on the floor.
So this could be seen as a silly idea, but a) the glass in the other two was ridiculously thin, and b) children seem to look after things better when they've made them.
Making snow gloves started quite fraught for me, finding cake toppers. We ended up in the shop I'm never usually allowed in- Kitchens... where of course, for the very reason I'm not usually allowed in, I walked out with far more than cake toppers.
With the jars containing glitter, I added water and glycerine. The advice to only use a drop is worth paying attention to, a glug results in the glitter becoming to heavy.
And voila, a proud moment for the Johnson Babies as they fell in love with their snow globes.
