Create a Fluffy Fake Snowstorm in a Rainbow of Colors!
Make the most colorful blizzard ever!
Steve Spangler Science’s Insta-Snow is the original faux snow. Just add water and it feels like real, fluffy snow – it’s even cold to the touch! These aspects all make Insta-Snow the most popular instant fake snow on the market. And now, by popular demand, you can make your own colors of Insta-Snow with the Rainbow Snow Kit.
The Rainbow Snow kit comes ready for you to create a colorful blizzard in moments. All it takes is combining a scoop of our Insta-Snow with some water that you colored with Color Fizzers!
What does it teach?
Rainbow Snow teaches kids about the science of polymers, matter and its interactions, color mixing, and water absorption. Our Rainbow Snow is part of the SICK Science Series. Each SICK Science Kit provides young scientists an opportunity to explore the world around them and engage with the properties that makes science so amazing.
Make a Science Fair Connection
While adding water to a super water-absorbing polymer and watching the mound of fluffy white snow erupt is fascinating, it is not a science fair project quite yet. You can create a science fair project by identifying a variable, or something that you can change, in this experiment.
Here are Some Science Fair Variable Options That Might Work!
Try testing for different reactions using various temperatures of water. Which temperature of water will create the fastest reaction? Which one will create the fluffiest snow?
Test Different “Recipes” of Snow
You have created mounds of snow with the given amounts of water and Insta-Snow powder that we specified. Try different proportions of water and Insta-Snow powder to see which “recipe” creates the fluffiest snow.
Try Coming Up With Other Ideas of Variables to Test!
Give some of your own ideas a try! Remember, you can only change one variable at a time for each test. For example, if you are testing different water temperatures, make sure that all other factors in the test remain the same!
