Step 2: MAKING it

Now to the snow is very easy. Just put the sodium into the container and add a little of water first and stir it.If it is still dry, put a little of water again and stir it until it looks like a snow. To much water will not make it dissolve but it wont be white as a snow.

If you the snow to become cold just like the real one, just put it into a refrigerator( not below freezing temp. It will make the snow to become hard like a ice cube)

Step 3: Enjoy!

Picture of Enjoy!
If you had done make it, you could throw a snow party or snow fight, but remember, safety first. And one more thing, you could make the snow to become black or blue in colour or what ever colour you want. Just mix the water with food colouring first and then mix the coloured water with the sodium.

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".

 is it the thing in the cupboard de-humidifiers?
2743 (author)  paperclip324 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.
2743 (author)  Kiteman5 years ago
yes, it is from google,sorry for the mistaked..
Kiteman 27435 years ago
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)
2743 (author)  Kiteman5 years ago
yes, I've did it and it works..
