Nature Leaf Snow Globe

This is an excellent idea for children to create a keepsake of natural leaves they have collected from different types of trees. 

Materials Needed:

  • A recycled jar
  • Water
  • A hole punch (with different shapes)
  • Pretty leaves

What To Do:

  • Collect a heap of beautiful leaves of different coloured leaves.
  • Hole punch your leaves in different shapes.
  • Add your leaf cuttings to the jar.
  • Fill the jar full of water but leave about a .5 cm gap from the top.
  • Put the lid on tightly.
  • Add some stick tape around the join too.
  • Shake it and you have created your very own nature leaf snow globe.
  • When you’re finished with it. Tip it out and make another one.

Hints and Tips:

  • It works better after a couple of days. 
  • It will get mouldy after a couple of weeks. When that happens tip it out and make another one. 
  • Collect other small objects to add such as gumnuts, berries, small sticks etc.
