DIY Toy Snow Globes – how to make toy snow globes for kids with the Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker.
I am an official ambassador for RoseArt. RoseArt provided me with products for the purpose of this post, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine.
Creating has always been something I’ve enjoyed. I remember making craft projects with my mom throughout my childhood and now enjoy watching my daughter find her creativity. When RoseArt asked if I would like to try their new Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker, I knew Madilynn would love it. The Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker comes with everything you need to cast your own toy pets. The kit includes the spinner, magic powder, molds, paint and tools needed.
Kids can make their own toy pets in a few easy steps! Simply mix the magic powder with water, pour into the mold and spin! The cast harden very quickly, unlike other powders that require at least 24 hours. Once the cast is ready you can start painting then glazing. We made a video below:
Step one: fill your cup with water. There’s a water line marking exactly how much you need, which makes it easy for kids.
Step two: stir in the packet of powder. The kit comes in a variety of colors for each pet. Use your plastic knife to stir until the liquid becomes thick enough that the heart cutout in the knife doesn’t have any bubbles (about 60 seconds).
Step three: open the bottom of the pet mold and pour the mixture in. Close the lid and attach to the spinner. Spin for about 60 seconds then set upside down; let the mold set for at least 20-30 minutes.
Step four: carefully remove the pet from the mold (parents may need to help with this step).
Step five: now it’s time to paint your pet! My daughter loved painting her pet with the bright colors that came with the kit. Let the paint dry for at least 30 minutes to an hour before adding the sparkle paint. This is the glaze that really helps brighten up the colors.
We used our sparkle pets to make snow globes. My daughter has two close friends in our neighborhood that she wanted to make a Christmas gift for. We kept it simple by only adding fake snow and glitter tape. You can definitely add glitter or make a snow scene with mini bottle brush trees.
To make a Spin & Sparkle Snow Globe you will need:
Spin & Sparkle pet
plastic snow globe
Glue the toy pet to the bottom of the snow globe. I tried a variety of glues and found this to be the best. Add a small amount of snow (and glitter if desired) then close your snow globe. Add glitter washi tape around the base and you’re done! I think they turned out great and my daughter is really excited to surprise her friends in a few weeks.
