Snow globes are amazing—you turn it upside down, and beautiful snow falls to the ground. Can you recreate this effect using iron filings? Let’s find out!
But first, a quick safety warning! The Iron Filings 3-Pack is safety tested for ages 6+, but adult supervision is required. Do not inhale or consume iron filings. Keep iron filings away from eyes. Magnets are not included in this set, but make sure the magnets you use to interact with the iron filings are age appropriate. Keep all small, powerful magnets away from children under age 8.
Shake the iron filings out of your snow globe and onto a sheet of paper. Fold the paper and use it as a funnel to pour them back into a jar to reuse for another activity like Magnets, Math, & Measurement, Oh My!, Mix It Up!, The Art of Science and All Shook Up!
