Make your own instant snow


 

*A SAMPLE PROJECT IN THE MONTHLY BOX*

 

Difficulty: ★☆☆☆☆
Play with kids in snow? Yes please! Taking kids to below zero temperatures? No thanks. Behold a fun snowing experience at home and perfect all year round - explore the science of polymers found in daily lives and make instant snow / make water disappear!

 

Kit contains:

  • A pack of snow powder
  • A pack of slush powder
  • Beaker x 2
  • Funnel
  • Eyedropper
  • Food coloring (Add-on)
  • Silicon castle mold (Add-on)

What's happening?

Snow powder is primarily a synthetic polymer used in cosmetics, cleansers, detergents, and even in diapers and tampons as an absorbing agent because of its said ability to absorb more than 100 times its mass in water. The process by which this chemical absorbs water is called osmosis - when the chemical is immersed in water, the water is drawn to the center of that chemical's molecule, thus absorbs water.

 

Level up the game!

Cut apart a disposable diaper to find the slush powder inside.
