The original fake snow polymer!

Snow is a seasonal phenomenon, but it can’t be relocated inside for study and play, and - in some areas of the country - it won’t appear at all. So, when snow (and fun) is on the mind, let the kids devour hours of fun with one of these Steve Spangler Science Insta-Snow Powder Kits - delivering realistic, fluffy snow that can be dried out to reuse countless times. With just the addition of water, the liquid/insta-snow powder mix turns into a solid within seconds-no mixing required. A true wonder and learning asset for a multitude of settings and playtimes.

Insta-Snow isn't just a cool demonstration, educators have found great use in sensory tables for early childhood and chemistry for advanced sciences!

No matter what quantity of Insta-Snow you choose, you'll get all of the materials you need including mixing instructions and the scientific explanation. You're getting a "WOW" factor with a ton of scientific application. Recommended for children ages 4 and up with adult supervision.

What does it teach?
Explore the ever-changing science of polymers as students experiment with Instant Snow. Each Insta-Snow product comes with an activity guide with suggestions for science fair projects and fun ways to explore the science of polymers. Within seconds, the liquid/powder mixture turns into a solid and then erupts into a fluffy, white snow-like material (no mixing required). Watch in amazement as it instantly expands up to 100 times its original volume.

Why Does Snow Feel Cold to the Touch?
Since the snow is almost entirely made up of water, the water is bound to evaporate. The process of evaporation produces a constant cooling effect. That's why Insta-Snow is so much fun to touch!

Can You Reuse It?
The snow will start to dehydrate after a few days due to evaporation. Just spray the top of the snow with water and fluff the snow with your fingers to give it a fresh, fluffy look. You can also let the snow completely dry out to use it again. The dry form of Insta-Snow powder will last forever!
