How to Make Your Own Land of Snowflakes Snow Globe

Land of the Snowflakes

SPONSORED - This post was created in partnership with the brand mentioned below.

The Land of Snowflakes is one of the Four Realms you will discover when you watch Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

 

Disney’s dazzling adventure “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”– inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and the beloved ballet “The Nutcracker”- carries audiences along with 14-year-old Clara (Mackenzie Foy) to a magical, mysterious world with breathtaking performances by Misty Copeland plus sweets, snowflakes, soldiers, scurrying mice… and no shortage of surprises.

If you haven’t had a chance yet to see the movie, you can now buy it so you can watch it over time and again with your family!  Once you start watching this movie, you will quickly agree it’s a must see!

Living in the Midwest we are starting to think that we are also living in the Land of Snowflakes!  We are right in the middle of a Polar Vortex that is pretty brutal.  Disney timed the arrival of this kit, as well as the arrival of The Nutcracker Puzzle, perfectly! 

In addition to receiving a copy of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, we also received this fun kit to make our own Land of Snowflakes Snow Globe!

Land of the Snowflakes

The best part about making this snow globe is that:

  • It’s totally customizable
  • You can pick up the supplies to make four of them (just like the Four Realms)
  • The supplies are easily found
  • The snow globes are very easy to make

 

Here is how to make the Land of Snowflakes come to life in your own home!

Supplies:

A snow globe that is water tight

Model trees

Gears and keys

Glitter

Instructions:

Put down a protective barrier on the surface you are going to be working on so that you can protect your table, counter, etc.
Lay out all of your items so you have everything in reach.

Place and glue any figures to the inside of the lid (like the trees and the Ballerina)


*The instructions on the glue said to let the glue dry for an hr so it could firmly set. We did that then came back to putting the snow globe together)
Add 2-3 Teaspoons of snow to the globe container

Here is the “SKOOP” about the Movie and the DVD/Blu-ray

Destined to become an annual viewing tradition for adventurers of all ages, the film arrives home instantly with never-before seen extras and deleted scenes on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Jan. 29, 2019.

Bonus features include a discussion with American Ballet Theatre’s Misty Copeland about her role as the enchanting Ballerina Princess, her personal history with “The “Nutcracker” ballet, and her inspirational and historic rise within the world of dance.

Extras take viewers on the set of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” to meet both new and reimagined characters, and discover how the Land of Sweets, Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and mysterious Fourth Realm were created to such dazzling effect. Deleted scenes provide a look at magical moments that didn’t make the final version of the movie.

In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Clara travels along a golden thread, presented at Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual party, eagerly searching for a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a music box that holds a priceless gift.

When she enters a mysterious parallel world, Clara encounters a Nutcracker soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and three Realm regents, including the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley). Ultimately, she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve the key and return harmony to the unstable world.
