Believe it or not, snow isn’t always white... well at least not when you’re talking about Insta-Snow® powder!
Steve Spangler Science's Insta-Snow is the original faux snow. Just add water and it feels like real, fluffy snow - it's even cold to the touch! These aspects all make Insta-Snow the most popular instant fake snow on the market. It's so popular that people have begun asking if we make it in any other colors. We'll go one better! Now you can make your own colors of Insta-Snow with the Rainbow Snow kit.
The Rainbow Snow kit comes ready for you to create a colorful blizzard in moments. All it takes is a scoop of our Insta-Snow, some water that you've colored with Color Fizzers, and combining the two. VOILA! Before you know it, you've created Rainbow Snow!

What Does It Teach?
The Sick Science!™ series covers a ton of science from a broad spectrum of fields. From optical illusions and color mixing to centripetal force and physics, you can find a use for every experiment in the series. Each Sick Science! kit provides young scientists an opportunity to explore the world around them and engage with the properties that make science so amazing.
Science Fair Connection:
While adding water to a super water-absorbing polymer and watching the mound of fluffy white snow erupt is fascinating, it is not a science fair project. You can create a science fair project by identifying a variable, or something that you can change, in this experiment. Let’s take a look at some of the variable options that might work:
Try testing for the fastest reaction by using different temperatures of water. Which temperature of water will create the fastest reaction? Which one will create the fluffiest snow?
Test different “recipes” of snow. You have created mounds of snow with the given amounts of water and Insta-Snow powder that we specified. Try different proportions of water and Insta-Snow powder to see which “recipe” creates the fluffiest snow.
These are just a couple of ideas, but you aren't limited to them! Come up with different ideas of variables to test and give them a try. Remember, you can only change one variable at a time for each test. For example, if you are testing different water temperatures, make sure that all other factors in the test remain the same!
Great Kit review by Amal Janahi on 5/23/2015
I bought this kit for my daughter's science fair project. In her project she tested the snow with different water temperature and found the answer. she was very happy and excited to feel the almost real snow since we are from middle east where we never have snow. Great product and will always be a customer. Thank you Steve for your lovely products and explanations.
