How to Make Snow for a Science Project

Making snow is very easy and can be used for all sorts of projects, even to decorate with during the holidays. With just a few ingredients that can be found at your local craft store or garden center, you can have your own snow in just a matter of minutes. This snow actually looks and feels very similar to the real thing, so you can get quite creative in the ways you decide to use it.

Things You'll Need

  • Sodium polyacrylate crystals
  • Water
  • Bowl

Video of the Day

Put some of the sodium polyacrylate crystals into a bowl. Add some water and stir. The amounts you will use will depend on how much snow you want to make. Start out with a little of each and then add more crystals and water until it is at the consistency you want it.

Allow the combination to sit for a few minutes so that it has time to expand.

Use it as you would regular snow. Make snowballs, snow angels or whatever your heart desires.

Sweep, shovel or pick up the snow after you are done using it.

Throw the material away in a trash container or keep it and rehydrate it with water once it dries up.
