Snow-Making Science Project
"Is it snowing yet? Snow, will we get snow? Snow, tomorrow? Why didn't we get a white Christmas?" These are all questions my 9 year old asked this year as we continue to experience an unseasonably warm winter so far.
If you were lucky enough to have a white Christmas, you may not need (or want) to produce your own snow. For the rest of us (who rung in the new year at 60 degrees), you just might want to experiment by making your own pretend snow.
Try this experiment from the folks at Kinder Art.com.
All you need are a few items (mostly found in your kitchen or bath room). You might not be able to build a snowman, fort, or have a snowball fight with your home-made snow. However, it will be a fun learning experiment.
