Insta-Snow Powder


Just add water and watch in amazement. Within seconds, the mixture transforms into a solid and then erupts into a fluffy, white, snow-like material. The best part? There’s no stirring required. Watch as it instantly expands up to 100 times its original volume before your eyes. Our Instant Snow Powder kit is a true wonder and a versatile learning aid for the classroom or playtime.

First, make sure you can’t use your Insta-Snow powder again. If your snow was handled by clean hands, take a shot and spread it out as thinly as possible in a dry area. Over time, the water in the powder will evaporate, leaving Insta-Snow powder that is ready to be reused.

If it is truly time to dump your Insta-Snow, do so in a trash can. NEVER PUT INSTA-SNOW DOWN THE DRAIN. If some Insta-Snow does end up clogging a drain, table salt and excess water should break down the polymer.

Mixing 1 teaspoon of Insta-Snow powder with 2 ounces of room temperature water produces the best quality snow. It is always recommended to make the snow in small quantities to achieve the greatest amount of mixing. Insta-Snow powder expands to 100 times its original volume. Just a small amount of powder is needed to make an impressive quantity of snow. On a much larger scale, 1 pound of Insta- Snow powder makes nearly 8 gallons of fluffy snow!

The snow will start to dehydrate after a few days due to evaporation. Just spray the top of the snow with water and fluff the snow with your fingers to give it a fresh, fluffy look. You can also let the snow completely dry out to use it again. The dry form of Insta-Snow powder will last forever!

Since the snow is almost entirely made up of water, the water is bound to evaporate. The process of evaporation produces a constant cooling effect. That’s why it’s so much fun to touch!

Yes! Just add a few drops of food coloring to the water before mixing it with the Insta-Snow powder. Or check out our Rainbow Snow Bundle
