White Christmas in Texas Review by Jennifer

I buy Insta-snow for my classroom each year. It is fun for my 3 and 4 year olds to make their "magic snow" in the winter. In Texas we rarely have real snow. We make the snow as a group and add it to our "sensory center." The kids LOVE it!! I tried a different brand last year because I they weren't selling Insta Snow at our mall. It was terrible! It was shiny and stuck to their fingers--when they washed it off it clogged our sink drain. Insta snow is great, they can shake it right off their hands. My only complaint would be if the kids play in it day after day, it does start to smell a bit and I have not been able to save it for year after year...I think with older kids it would be possible to save, but not wiht all the handling my kids do. Fantastic Snow!
