I have always loved snow globes! I have only lived in snowy places for a few years of my entire life, and snow globes are the closest substitute I have to the real stuff.

The micro pellets are great for small scale projects like this one. I like how Santa looks like he is walking in snow. Kids will enjoy shaking the frame to watch the snow swirl around and fall to the ground.
