Step One: Gather materials. *The trick to getting the snowman to work is to put a few drops of dish soap into the jar along with the glitter. This helps the glitter float gently through the water, rather than clumping up on the top of the jar.
- Silver glitter
- Black beads
- Googly eyes
- Dish soap
Step Two: In the jar, place two sticks, buttons, black beads (for the mouth), a carrot (you can also use a piece of orange felt), googly eyes, and any other accessories you think the snowman should have.
Step Three: Fill the jar with water and sprinkle in some sliver glitter for fun. Drop 2 drops of dish soap into the water to keep the glitter from sticking to the surface of the water.
Step Four: Seal the jar tightly and give it a shake.
Step Five: The child can then watch as the snowman pieces gently swirl around the jar and either sink to the bottom or rise to the top, depending on how dense they are.
