Instant snow is formulated from the same type of polymer used in baby diapers called sodium polyacrylate. Online Science Mall received dozens of samples from various manufacturers before we chose the best one. This is so much better than other fake and artificial snows. Our Instant Snow quickly expands to many times its initial volume in seconds. Also, we judge this to have nice snow like consistency and white color.

This is often used as a special effect in movies, television and photography and will not harm plants; it will actually help them because of its water holding properties. Snow starts as a fine white powder and when activated by common tap water will expand up to 100x its original volume. One ounce will produce up to two quarts of snow. (Hard water will produce less; distilled water will produce the highest volume). Snow Facts:
Snow can be allowed to dry and reused
Snow is not harmful to the environment
Snow can be colored by using food coloring in the water
Snow can be used for indoor skiing, snowboarding and sledding
Snow has been used as a fire retardant in certain applications
Once your snow is made you will have to maintain it with a little spraying of water now and then. Snow always has a slightly cool feeling due to the evaporation of water from it but it will not approach the freezing temperature of real snow
Salt will get release the water from the snow but the instant snow will lose its water absorbing qualities forever
Instant Snow is slippery, be careful if walking on it.

How to Make Snow

Each 16 x 125mm test tube contains about ½ ounce of snow polymer and will make approximately 2 cups of snow. In a clean container mix 2 ounces of tap water per teaspoon of snow powder while using a spoon or spatula to turn the snow over to expose any polymer that is not hydrated. The snow should be fluffy, not slushy. If too much water is added, just let it sit, turning the snow on a regular basis and the excess will evaporate. If the snow is too fluffy, slowly add water until the desired consistency is achieved. Maintain your snow by spraying or adding a little water as needed. Snow is not toxic to the environment and can be disposed of by normal methods.

To dispose of your snow:

   A)  Allow snow to dry and then throw-out.

   B)  Mix the snow with soil in your garden.

   C)  Add salt to the snow and it will liquefy and then can be washed down the drain.
