NEW PRODUCT – DIY Snow Globe Kit – 108mm Diameter

NEW PRODUCT – DIY Snow Globe Kit – 108mm Diameter


Not merely a snow globe, but a show globe! This custom container is durable, clear and round, with a large flat screw-on top and a press-fit rubber stopper. The stopper makes a nice seal, and is also hollow which means you can put (you guessed it…) electronics inside! This makes it perfect for your own electronic-powered snow globe.

The stopper inner diameter is ~60mm diameter and ~13.5mm deep, which means it has tons of room for goodies. We picked this size because it fits a Circuit Playground Express or Circuit Playground Classic with a 500 mAh lipo battery perfectly. Or if soldering isn’t scary, maybe a 16 NeoPixel Ring with your favorite small microcontroller board. You could also go simple and just toss some wire lights in there. Or, since it’s so easy to disassemble, try all three!

Check out the many electronic snow globe guides we have for you to follow.

You’ll need water, glitter or some other snow-like materials, glycerine (to slow the water down), something cool to show off inside, and E6000 glue to make the stopper seal permanent. Those items are not included, but you can purchase them at your friendly local art supply, crafting or hardware store.

In stock and shipping now!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
