    Make a sparkly, swirly snow globe with a tiny elephant on display inside. Use the swirly sparkles inside the globe to help settle down feelings, or to count down from a tough spot to calmer thoughts. The little elephant friend inside helps give a friendly focus to enjoy your snow globe, because sometimes things feel as big as elephants but are just small after all! One globe per child. Ages 7-12.
