Make Your Own Snow
{Pinterest Classroom Project}

9:00 AM

Welcome to my series "Pinterest Classroom Project"! This series is based around my cooking series, "Pinterest Test Kitchen". Every other month, I post four classroom projects or experiments and let all of you vote for one week on which you'd most like to see tested. This month's winner was "Make Your Own Snow" which was originally created by Growing A Jeweled Rose, click here to view the full post!

This is by far the easiest experiment as it involves two common household ingredients and can be done with any age range, although be careful with small children eating this one! 

What You'll Need:

- Large box of baking soda
- 5 to 10oz of shaving cream

What To Do:

Step 1:
Begin by adding the entire box of baking soda into a large mixing bowl.

Step 2:
Slowly add in shaving cream and mix well, adjust amount used until you get a snow like texture.

Step 3:
Fully mix the ingredients and play around with your mixture!

My kids had a blast with this simple experiment and were able to complete it entirely on their own. The best part to them was the fact that the mixture was fairly cold and they were able to form snowballs that held together quite well. It does make a bit of a mess so be prepared to lay down some newspaper or towels so the kids can have tons of fun with their own homemade snow!

The fun part of this experiment is how you can easily expand upon it. You can turn this into "Exploding Snow" by simply taking a spoonful or two of the snow mixture into a plastic cup and slowly add a bit of vinegar. The classic "volcanic" reaction will occur and likely delight your kids! My kids were underwhelmed as they wanted to see an actual explosion but I blame their pre-teen ideals on the let down of that part of the experiment.

I highly recommend giving this experiment a try as it is so simple to make and ends up being a blast for the whole family. I know my kids will be trying to build a snowman with this for the rest of the week!
