20 minutes + drying time

Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Take a transparent bauble and split it in half. Then paint the outside of each half with white acrylic paint.
  2. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle some iridescent glitter over the two halves of the bauble. Leave to dry.
  3. Once dry, use the glue gun to stick glitter pom poms around the outside of the bauble.
  4. Add small toys or treats inside one half of the bauble, then attach the other half to it and push the gold top on top of the bauble to fix the two halves together.

Top Tip

Instead of pom poms, you could use sequins and gems. Surprise kids and family by hiding sweets, chocolates or small gifts inside the snowball!
