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
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)
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.
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!
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.
