If your mad about Moshi Monsters this is a fabulous little craft activity to do which is quick and easy and you have a product at the end that you can keep forever.
These snow globes make lovely little gifts for your children for the run up to Christmas.
Joseph recently saw the idea in a magazine of his and has been bugging me for ages to do it so we collected up the items that we would need and set to it.
Items you will need:
- 1 small jar with a screw on lid, we found that the perfect size was a baby food jar
- 1 Moshi Moshling
- Coloured glitter of your choice – white or silver would give the effect of snow
- Extra strong glue (Only for adult use only)
- A spare bottle lid ( water bottle) or some foam cut up small enough to fit onto the jar lid
- First you will need to choose your moshling that you want to use, once you have decided on one from your many stashed away in your bedroom, you will need to get the foam or bottle lid and glue it to the lid from the jar, I found it hard to glue shiny plastic to plastic so i found that foam worked just as well. Cut you foam into small square shapes, just the right size to fit into the jar lid, making a little mountain out of them by stacking them together and glueing them all together. Once dried stick the foam onto the inside of the jar lid and them glue your moshling on to the foam. This will raise him up so you will be able to see him in the jar. Wait to dry. The sticking should only be done by a sensible adult as the glue is very strong and you can glue your fingers together (I am not a sensible adult nor is Daddy lol)
- Now fill your jar with water leaving a little gap about a centimeter at the top, add in your glitter. Keeping your jar upright screw on your lid with the moshling attached. Make sure it is nice and tight, you can secure the lid with a bit of glue if preferred
- You now are ready to turn it upside down and shake away.
This activity can be done with any small toy or object, children love them. Our one sits proudly on the livingroom side along with the snow globe that the boys got at christmas
