Details

Teachers from coast to coast continue to share their classroom connections and techniques for using our Insta-Snow powder as a teaching tool. With input from many teachers, we developed the Insta-Snow Classroom Kit as a tool for introducing students to physical reactions, polymer science, and the environmental benefits of superabsorbents.Insta-Snow Steps

Insta-Snow is an amazing polymer that turns ordinary water into a white fluffy substance that looks like real snow! Insta-Snow is the latest technology used by movie makers to create incredibly realistic snow scenes without the hassle of melting ice. Just add a little water and watch the white powder expand to 100 times its original size.

Insta-Snow powder is non-hazardous and environmentally safe. Recommended for students K-8 with adult supervision.

You get enough materials for a teacher demonstration and 24 individual portions of Snow!

How Does It Work?

Insta-Snow® is an amazing superabsobent polymer that turns ordinary water into a white fluffy substance that looks like real snow! Insta-Snow is the latest technology used by movie makers to create incredibly realistic snow scenes without the hassle of melting ice. Just add a little water and watch the white powder expand to 100 times its weight in water.

What Does It Teach?

Students work in pairs as they use the scientific method to experiment with making the perfect batch of faux snow in a Petri dish. This small-scale approach gives the students the opportunity to repeat the experiment many times.

  1. Classroom activity review by Nana on 1/28/2015

    I bought this for my grandson's classroom to enjoy. What child does not love snow! This area very seldom sees snow. His teacher said it would be perfect for the winter curriculum. I wish I could send more things like this for his class as well as for the other grandchild when he enters kindergarten., but way too costly, especially with the shipping. Wonderful product

  2. Great fun for boys and girls review by Ursula Boudreau on 4/28/2013

    I bought this classroom kit and the jelly worms kit for my son's birthday party. I brought foil pans and used the snow powder to make batches for kids to share. I added food coloring to the water to make pink and blue snow. The kids loved playing with their 'cotton candy snow.' I used the test tubes for teh goodie bags. I just put one in each of the baggies and added a mailing label with mixing instructions. One of the parents was so impressed he asked where I bought the kits from. I was more than happy to say 'Steve Spangler Science!'

  3. Cool experiment review by Michele Glover on 3/13/2013

    My daughter picked several experiments for her birthday party. This was by far her favorite. The snow was fun to work with, and it did shrink back down to it's original size after a couple of days in the sun.

    Our only issue was that we had a tough time getting the material out of some of the tubes and it was hard to control how much material came out of it. Would be nice if the tube had either an opening at the other end we could use to push the material out or something.

  4. A White Christmas in Denver? review by Janice Kinnin on 1/19/2013

    The kids in our classroom had a great time with the insta-snow. They loved the feel of it as it expanded in their hands. The only challenge was getting the polymers out of the test tubes without a lot of banging, shaking and digging out with a popsicle stick. Sadly, that took away a lot of time from our experiment in the classroom.

  5. Great Classroom Activfity review by Stacey Holle on 12/28/2012

    I bought this kit for my childs winter party at school. The kids were amazed that adding a little water to the powder produced indoor snow that they could play with and enjoy. The snow was quick and easy to make and realistically cold to the touch after a few minutes. Both adults and children enjoyed playing in large tubs of snow. I highly recommend this snow for any classroom activities. Although I purchased it as a fun party activity, it came with a science sheet that a teacher could use to teach about volume, polymers, and other science related topics. A great kit for people of all ages.

  6. Feaux Sneaux aka Insta Snow review by Ashley Lyle on 12/20/2012

    In south Louisiana we call this stuff Feaux Sneaux. The kids absolutely love this stuff. I used it for a VBS activity. I put 1/2 tablespoon in one of those little togo ramekins you get sauces in at resturants and the kids added about 40mL of water and were amazed. The great thing about the togo ramekins is they came with lids so the kids got to take their snow home. They liked that part the best. Thanks for making this scientific polymer so readily avaliable.

  7. amazing review by Tammy McNamara on 11/10/2012

    Did this for my sons 8th birthday and the kids went crazy. LOVE IT

  8. Loved it review by Lin Dushka on 9/22/2012

    I purchased the Insta-snow for my Son's science project and we studied Super Absorbent Polymers. We purchased the class room kit and had the entire class participate in the experient. It was absolutely excellent and the kids loved it. They said he had the best project ever! Thank you so much. We look forward to next year.
