In this instructable I will show you how to make an artificial snow.It is fun, easy to make ,looks like a real, feel cool to the touch , last for few days and non-toxic(doesn't mean that you can eat it). For the person who live in a country that doesn't have a snow, try to make some!!

Step 1: THE resources

Picture of THE resources
First, you need to gather some things to make fake snow. You could find these things at your house

*sodium polyacrylate (you could find it in a disposable diapers)
*some water

Then, by using a scissor carefuly cut the outer layer of the diaper. You might found somethings that looks like a cotton, thats the sodium!!Now read the next step.
is it only avalible in diapers? this is very cool and want to make it!
correction up can also find it in pads ampons ETC

Some hobby chains in the US sell it in their Science section in a fake test tube. I believe it's the same thing. I also believe it's called "fake snow".

 yes. but I believe that it has been grind into fine powder so that it will be more realistic

 is it the thing in the cupboard de-humidifiers?
2743 (author)  paperclip325 years ago
 no, that is calcium chloride. but the sodium polyacrylate you can found in babies diaper( the new one of coarse) . just tear the thin fabric and you'll found it . if you mix it with the right amount of water, it will be exactly like a real snow. the good thing is, it would not melt!!

Two points; First, are those images of your project, or googled? Second, sodium polyacrylate does not biodegrade, so you need to add a note to clear it all up and dispose of it properly later.

yes, it is from google,sorry for the mistaked..

No need to be sorry, just do it for real and take photos this time.

(Unless you pinched the whole idea from the internet and have never actually done it? In which case, the most honest thing to do would be to unpublish the project (not delete) until you have done it for real, and you can give more useful tips)
