DIY Globe

In honor of Earth Day, I made this globe using a ball, paint, sales paper from a dollar store, and Mod Podge. This is a fun and educational craft project that you can do with children. Adults can use this opportunity to teach children about geography, the planets, recycling etc.

I bought a plastic ball at a dollar store for about $1.50. I also took a stack of their sales papers to use for the project because most of those papers either end up in the trash or all over the parking lots.

I cut long strips of the paper and began gluing them around the ball using Mod Podge.

I waited about an hour until the paper was dry. Then, I painted the strips using a foam brush and Pool Blue acrylic paint. (I used two coats of paint, letting each coat dry about 30-40 minutes before moving on to the next step.)

I found this awesome continent printout at terrellfamilyfun.com. I cut out the continents and glued them on the globe.

Finally, I sealed everything together with a coat of Mod Podge.

My son couldn’t wait to get his hands on this “globe”!

DIY Disney Crafts

These craft projects are for anyone who is a Disney fan. My son loves anything that has to do with Disney characters, so I make sure to create projects that he will enjoy.

1. Disney Snow Globe

I made a snow globe with a Snow White figurine, canning jar, glue gun, white glitter, and glycerin.

I poured water, glitter, and one drop of glycerin into the jar.

Next, I glued the figurine to the lid.

Then, I turned the figurine over into the jar and screwed on the lid.

How cute is this? It really does look like snow is falling on Snow White!

 

2. Disney Character Magnets

I found some packs of glass stones, Disney stickers, and Mod Podge at a dollar store to help create these adorable magnets.

I began by spreading Mod Podge on the back of the stones and front of the stickers. Then, I glued the two together, let them dry for about two hours, then added the adhesive magnets.

My son loves playing with these magnets!

I cut out the Mickey Mouse shapes with the hole punch.

Then I glued the shapes on the ring with Mod Podge. After a few minutes, I got tired of waiting on the Mod Podge to dry, so I used my hot glue gun instead.
