How to Make a Mason Jar Glitter Globe

There is this cute little show called Creative Galaxy available through Amazon Prime and it has gotten my 4-year-old son so excited about crafts. The show follows a little alien, named Arty, as he solves problems with arts and crafts. It’s like a DIY mom’s dream, right?! Anyway — one of my favorite projects {inspired by the show} was our Glitter Globe.

In this episode, Arty saves the day by creating a snow globe for Baby Georgia. She’s been sad because Arty made her a snowman outside; but they couldn’t bring it inside. With her snow globe, she can enjoy the snowman year-round, inside and out!

After Arty learns how to make a snow globe by visiting one of the planets in the Creative Galaxy; real kids make snow globes of their own. Each Creative Galaxy episode ends with real kids making a real-life version of Arty’s art or craft. This is what really gets my little boy excited because he realizes he can make it, too!


Since it’s been 80-90 degrees here lately, we decided to make a Glitter Globe instead of a Snow Globe. We started by raiding my craft stash and choosing items that would do fine in water — sequins, glitter, felt flowers, faux stones, etc.


He hand picked his favorite items and then placed them in a mason jar. I added the water and screwed on the lid really tight, just like the kids emphasize on the TV show.

Then, all you have to do is shake…


…and enjoy the pretty colors!

We only started watching Creative Galaxy because we dropped Cable TV and starting utilizing our Amazon Prime account. We have had Prime for years; but only utilized the Free 2-Day Shipping and not the TV/Music choices. Once we cut Cable, we started depending on Prime for our TV choices.

There are tons of kids’ shows available; but Creative Galaxy {along with a few others} is created by Amazon and only available via Prime. If you aren’t already a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial and give it a test run.

If you are already a member — and have kiddos — you should definitely check out Creative Galaxy, especially if you’d like to get your child excited about art.
