In the clip, Lee shows how a trip to the local dollar store can yield big rewards in the craft department. To make Lee’s “leaf globe” you will need a plastic globe, glitter, glitter, ribbon, and a hot glue gun.
While parents may have to do most of the heavy lifting for this craft, there are many ways kids can help.
Let your child choose their favorite assortment of ribbons and confetti from the dollar store to decorate their globe.
During the making process, have them pour in their choice of glitter followed by their favorite color of glitter to help them practice their fine motor skills.

Then fill the globe with water and close it. Next, have your child select the ribbons they want for the base of their leaf globe.
Hot glue the ribbon of your choice to the bottom of the snow globe, making sure it is evenly covered. Then hot glue a thin piece of ribbon or string around the top outside edge of the snow globe base on the plastic curve and let dry.
Let your child shake their “leaf globe” as you both marvel at the brilliant delicacies swirling through their snow globe world.
There are many benefits to crafts and DIY activities. Using art supplies helps young children develop fine motor skills. Creative projects can also stimulate children’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills and help them understand how they see the world around them.
