Magic snow is always an instant hit with kids, and it is super easy to make. All you need is to place the powder on aluminium foil or in a container, and add water. It will then rapidly transform into artificial snow, which even feels cold.
The magic experience of watching how it grows from a simple white powder to a massive amount of snow is fascinating for all ages. Magic snow is actually a polymer able to absorb water up to 300 times its own weight. The reason the snow feels cold is because it is almost entirely made up of water, and water evaporates. This evaporation creates a cooling effect.
Magic snow is created by a molecule called sodium polyacrylate and is completely non-toxic and safe for children. More details will be found in the activity sheet that follows the product.
