Have a Snow Day

Children will delight in creating a little wintry magic, whatever the season. This kit contains everything they need to create their own, one-of-a-kind snow globe. They'll start with brightly colored polymer clay, and with adult supervision bake it into permanent form. Then they'll follow the simple instructions to insert their sculpture into the clear plastic ball, and add water and glitter. As a final personal touch, they can decorate the cardboard base in any way they can imagine. Packaging is 100% recycled, and 100% recyclable. Made in China.

Good fun, but needs to be for an older child

Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN SNOWGLOBE KIT:

The kit itself was pretty cool and the person I gave it to loved it. However it really is geared toward a 10 year old. The clay was really crumbly and hard to roll into anything - it needed 2 adults to help. Not sure how to keep the glitter from clumping when you put it into the globe with the water...but there is a good sized clump that detracts from the look of the finished product.

    To make a piece of art out of clay and then have it immortalized in water is too fun! Easy to use, fun to play with and a great end product! This will be a gift to all the kids I know!

          Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN SNOWGLOBE KIT:

          As it is stated, "clay and glitter colors vary from kit-to-kit". The kit I received included black, dark blue, green and yellow clay with blue and silver glitter and what I believe to be a blue base. I was hoping for more gender neutral colors for my 8 year-old niece. This $28 snow globe will go in the Toys For Tots bin.

                  Comments about MAKE YOUR OWN SNOWGLOBE KIT:

                  We were so excited to make our snow globes together this morning, and after I read all the instructions to the kids we couldn't wait to dive into the clay. It was so hard and dry that no amount of squishing, rolling or man handling would soften it. The kids are so disappointed as am I. A creative project like this amongst all the battery operated toys is a welcome gift but when it fails, it is frustrating for sure. I hope that they keep this product but have a sell by date for the clay!

                        Love shopping at Christmas time through Uncommon Goods! Such unique fun gifts! I purchased this for my 10 year old for a stocking stuffer. Received in only a few days(super fast)and it looks just like it was described. Won't know how it holds up until we put it together, but looks like a fun time w/ my son whether it works or not!

                            Allows children to use their own creativity to make something with which everyone loves to "play".

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            Delivery was prompt and arrived in good condition. I especially appreciated that I was sent two different colored boxes with different colored glitter as the gifts are for two siblings and that allows for some individualism for each child even though they are receiving the same item. Thank you to the packers!
