Make polymer snow! This is the Winter-themed activity in Kitchen Chemistry: Weather Science, created by Audrey Hagopian for our Charter a Summer of Learning guide.
Materials for Polymer Snow
Snow powder (find it at Amazon, Walmart, or Steve Spangler)
Procedure for Polymer Snow
Measure 1 teaspoon of snow powder and add it to the cup.
Pour 2 ounces of room temperature water on top of the snow powder in the cup.
Watch & observe the snow created in front of your eyes!
Ask your child to list the similarities and differences between the polymer snow that they created and the real snow that falls from the sky.
Note: Check the ratios of snow powder to water on your snow powder container as they may be different from what is listed above.
