Instant Snow

It's so fun when we get something new in the classroom that will amaze and astound us.
This week we had such a thing to play with.

Described as:
"Insta-Snow is an amazing powder that turns ordinary water into a fluffy substance that looks like real snow."

"This faux snow is so realistic that it is now being used in indoor snowboarding parks throughout the world.  Insta-Snow will not melt or ice up.  It comes in an 8 oz. jar.  It is safe, non-toxic and can be used for parties, holiday displays, decorations, movie sets, or in a school science lab."
"Note: Do not eat this product.  Keep container stored in a dark, cool and dry location.  Sweep or vacuum all spills.

We got out a big bowl because we didn't know what to expect - and water to add to the Instant Snow. 
We shook the powder into the bowl! Not too much at first.


Added some water and then observed.

This is what we got - more like slush. So we decided we didn't add enough powder - or we added too much water.

The children described this as slush - wet and cold!

Everyone wanted a feel and described it similarly.

However we added more powder and voila! Snow!

It was still wet feeling - it could be squeezed and manipulated without losing it snow appearance. After we investigated it for awhile we decided to leave it out to see how long it takes to turn back into it's powder form - because this can be used over and over again! We will see if this is true for us!
We did get it everywhere so vacuuming was required - but it was worth the efforts - because it did look and feel 'cool'!

  2. I haven't done the kind you can buy, but I've tried the one from a diaper (which sounds gross) and my kids really enjoyed it!

    Thanks for linking up to Science Sunday!
