Kid Crafts: How to Make Snow Globes

Hey Everyone! Pearl and I show you how to make snow globes today on Kid Crafts. Now, I know a lot of you claim to not be crafty. I hear it all the time. “I’m sooo not crafty.” “I do not have one crafty bone in my body…” etc. etc. You are my favorite kind of people.  Because you are so easy to prove wrong! Stop judging yourself, watch this video, grab a thing, and glue it to the inside of a mason jar. Don’t overthink it. The glitter stays in the jar of course, so there’s no mess. And the glitter storm- the glitter storm is the magical moment that you deserve. xo
