DIY Disney Snow Globes - Easy Crafts for Kids



Two weeks ago we were privileged enough to visit Disneyland Paris and oh what an experience it was. While it still doesn't compare to Disney World, and I'm not so sure that any of the other Disney parks can, it's a reality all of it's own, and one not to miss if you're in France. We decided to navigate our way from London via the Eurostar, touted as one of the fastest train in the world, and the 3 hour trip was unremarkable until we got to our hotel, the Vienna House Dream Castle Paris. Madison wasn't feeling well, so our first day was spent unwinding in our hotel room watching Cartoon Network in French. While I plan on sharing more of our Disneyland Paris trip in an upcoming post, today is all about our Do-It-Yourself Disney Snow Globes. I am an enormous fan of snow globes and I tend to collect them from every country that I visit, and sometimes states, if I can find them. Disneyland Paris was no exception. Snow Globes however, ranged from €35 and up, but it didn't prohibit my obsession, I still had to acquire one to commemorate my trip. Nonetheless, if you're a Disney enthusiast like I am, you may want to make your very own snow globes that you can showcase.

DIY Disney Snow Globes


Supplies needed:

Mason Jars
Glue (Glue Gun or Super Glue) we used E6000
Disney Figurines (purchased at the dollar store)
Glitter color of your choice
Baby Oil
Water


Directions

1. Attach your figurine to the cover of your mason jar with your glue. I also happened to have some mini Eiffel Tower figurines that I attached to the cover as well.


2. Line the bottom of the jar with the glitter of your choice. I love the silver since it looks more like snow, but you can use any color that you like. Madison decided that she was going to do her Mickey and Minnie snow globe with both green and silver glitter.


3. Fill your mason jar with water leaving, about an inch from the top so that you can shake it around.

4. Add a drop of baby oil to the water so that it makes the glitter float around slower compared to just using water. (Madison went a little glitter crazy, so I had to end up pouring a little of her glitter out.)


5. Attach your cover to the mason jar, shake and let the snow fall around your figurines.


Now of course this doesn't quite come close to the originals being sold at Disneyland Paris, and it never will, but I do feel better knowing that Madison can play with this as much as she wants, and if she drops and breaks it, it can be easily replaced unlike my original that I purchased in Paris. This is a win-win for both of us.  This didn't cost an arm and a leg to make and it was a fun project to do with her as well.

Doing projects together gives us that quality mommy and me time that she loves and it makes our bond a lot stronger, well until daddy walks in the door.


Spring was in the Air at Disneyland Paris and we all had a fabulous time. Although Madison was not at 100%, feeling ill the day before, she insisted on going. She had fun on the rides, and her favorite was actually going around in the teacups. She couldn't get enough of it. She also got to meet some of the characters she knew and love, and had her photo taken. Seeing that it was St. Patricks Day, we got to witness not only the Spring Parade but the St. Patricks Day Parade as well. It truly was an amazing visit and we hope to visit again one day soon.


Let's discuss: What's your favorite Disney park or ride?

    1. We still yet to visit Disneyland California and might do it next year. I'm hoping to visit Japan in a year or two so might hit up Disneyland Tokyo and give it a go as well. I hope you're able to take your little one to Disneyland Paris. You'll both love it!

    1. Just make sure you have your supplies and it doesn't even have to be Disney. Any toy character they like would be a good idea.

  6. Snow globes are so expensive! That turned out really nicely! I never would have thought of using baby oil but now that I see this it does makes a lot of sense to use it.

    1. Oh it was amazing!! We left before the parked closed but we still had a great time. Madison wasn't at 100% so she wanted to leave early after she'd rode on her favorite rides.

    1. Have a go at it. The supplies are fairly easy to get and you may even have a few at home. You can even use some of the kids left smaller toys if they can fit.

  12. I love snow globes and I remember the prices. Not to mention bringing back one on the plane. Not cool! I have always wanted to make my own snow globe.

    1. Oh yeah we had our own experience leaving London. I had no idea a snow globe was considered liquid so I had to end up putting my carryon on the plane so I could bring it back with me. :(

  13. What a great way to capture a moment after a Disney trip. I can think of a few ideas I like to make into a snow globe.

  14. These DIY Disney Snow Globes turned out really awesome! Our oldest made one in her class at church a some years ago but I don't think it had baby oil in it. The baby oil seems like it would make the glittery float around better than plain water.

    1. Oh yes it makes it float around a little slower as well. I hadn't made one in quite some time and I'm glad I got to make it with Madison.

  15. I think Animal Kingdom or Magic Kingdom would have to be mine. I've never bought snow globe, but I imagine they would be pricey!

    1. Oh yes they sure are pricey. I love collecting them however and I just love the ones that are musical.

  16. These snowglobes are so cute. I never would have thought of putting a figurine in one. I am going to make one of these for one of my very best friends and put Cinderella in it.
