After the initial mixing you will want to dive in & mix the ingredients with your hands for a few minutes.  As the ingredients are mixed the snow slime will form

Make it COLD by storing it in a zip seal bag in the fridge before and after play.  The cold feel of the slime makes it unique from any other slime we have made.   Nothing like cold snow slime that sparkles as it OOZES
