Instant fake snow
Artificial snow is always popular and it is very easy to do. All you need is to put the powder on aluminium foil or in a container and add water. The powder is then quickly transformed into artificial snow, and it even feels cold.
The magical experience of seeing how it grows from a simple white powder to a large amount of snow is fascinating for all ages. Magic snow is actually a polymer that can absorb water up to 300 times its own weight. The reason why the snow feels cold is that it almost entirely consists of water and water evaporates. This evaporation has a cooling effect.
The powder is created by a molecule called sodium polyacrylate and it is completely non-toxic and safe for children. More information can be found in the activity sheet that comes with the product..
