In the clip, Lee demonstrates how a trip to the local dollar store can reap big rewards in the crafting department. To make Lee’s fall “leaf globe,” you’ll need a plastic globe, glitter, sequins, ribbon, and a hot glue gun. 

While parents might have to do most of the heavy gluing for this craft, there are many ways children can help in the process. 

Let your child pick out their favorite assortment of ribbons and confetti at the dollar store for decorating their globe. 

During the crafting process, have them pour in their choice of sequins followed by their favorite color of glitter to help them practice fine motor skills.

Next, fill the globe with water and seal it shut. Then have your child select which ribbons they’d like for the base of their leaf globe.

Hot glue their choice of ribbon over the bottom of the snow globe, making sure it’s evenly covered. Then hot glue a thin piece of ribbon or twine around the top outer rim of the snow globe’s base on the plastic curve and let it dry. 

Let your child give their “leaf globe” a good shake while you both marvel at the shiny delights swirling around in their snow globe universe. 

There are many benefits to crafts and DIY activities. Using art materials helps young children develop their fine motor skills. Creative projects can also boost children’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills and help them process how they see the world around them.
