Rosie and Jewel had so much fun with this winter science experiment.  Make sure you have lots of Alka-Seltzer on hand, because kids will want to "make it snow" again & again!

  • Briefly set this to the side.
Making the "Snow"
  • Combine one teaspoon of white paint with one cup of very warm water.  
  • Stir until the paint is dissolved.  
  • Once mixed pour the "white water" into the jar, leaving a touch of room at the top.

  • Have kids add glitter and food coloring if desired.  Then, wait for the glitter and water to settle at the bottom of the jar.
