All you have to do is add water and this Insta-Snow® powder instantly erupts in a fluffy white flurry that looks and feels just like real snow. With just a tiny amount of this dry white powder you can create an amazing reaction as the superabsorbent polymer soaks up 100 times its own weight in water to cause the gigantic eruption. Everything you need to uncover the secret behind the snow they use in movies is right here in this kit. You'll even learn how to make colored snow.
- Insta-Snow powder

What does it teach?FX Snow will teach young scientists about superabsorbent polymers - long chains of molecules that can absorb over 100 times their own weight. They'll see how "cool" their absorbing reaction can be.

We first purchased this when my son was 6, and have brought it to science class every year when they study water/ weather/polymers. It's great fun and learning for all the kids. They are always amazed when it poofs up into the snow! Never get old, especially since we live in Florida and don't get real snow! If you let it freeze on your deck in winter, in makes real looking snow and ice too!
