Working principle of the activity

This instant snow is a white powder like polymer which has great affinity for liquids. It can just suck up all the liquid and grow into real fluffy and almost resembling like the real snow and that too within seconds. In this activity, when we add water to the snow powder, being a superabsorbent polymer it readily absorbs the water and swells into fluffy white snow in your hand.

The best part is you can make your snow anywhere and at any time irrespective of your surrounding temperatures. It means you can now enjoy and have fun with snow even if it doesn’t snow in your area or in summers too as it doesn’t even melt!!

You can also get your dry snow powder polymer back by evaporating the added water from it and reuse it. That means it’s again ready for another fluffy instant snow experiment.
