Make Gallons of Fluffy Snow in Seconds
Top sensory toys & STEM activities perfect for classrooms and the home
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. Insta-Snow powder is non-hazardous and environmentally safe. Recommended for students K-8 with adult supervision.
What does it teach?
Students work in pairs as they use the scientific method to experiment with making the perfect batch of faux snow in a Petri dish. This small-scale approach gives the students the opportunity to repeat the experiment many times. Within seconds, the liquid/powder mixture turns into a solid and then erupts into a fluffy, white snow-like material (no mixing required).
How Does It Work?
Insta-Snow is an amazing superabsobent polymer that turns ordinary water into a white fluffy substance that looks like real snow! Insta-Snow is the latest technology used by movie makers to create incredibly realistic snow scenes without the hassle of melting ice. Just add a little water and watch the white powder expand to 100 times its weight in water.
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!
