Make Your Own Snow Shaker

Make Your own Snow Shaker

This is a fun Christmas craft activity for kids of all ages. Little children like the magic of the glitter “snow” and older children can spend hours moulding their plasticine models.

You will need:

  • Jar with tight fitting lid (Salsa jars are great!)
  • Glycerine (buy from the chemist)
  • Glitter
  • Plasticine
  • Glue


Make a plasticine model and glue to the inside of the lid. Make sure the model fits completely inside the jar and you can tightly close the lid and jar. Fill the clean empty jar with glycerine and add glitter. Carefully insert lid/model and close securely.

This project and loads of other easy Christmas Crafts can be found in the Buttonbag book BoyCraft.
