MAKE A SNOW STORM IN A JAR! Experiment for Kids #sciencefairprojects #scienceexperimentskids #scienceforkids #snowstorminajar #snowstorm #preschoolscienceactivities #snowstemactivitiesforkids
We love coming up with fun ways to play in the snow, and when we don't have the real thing we are quite versed on making our own ways to play. 
Today, we experimented to see if we could make a snow storm in-a-jar!

Rosie and Jewel had so much fun with this simple experiment, and it can easily be re-created at home.  Are you ready to make a snow storm?

FUN SCIENCE: Make a snow storm in a jar.  How cool!  (Winter science for kids) #scienceexperimentkids #scienceforkids  #snowstorminajar #snowstorm #preschoolscienceactivities #winteractivitiesforkids #wintercraftsforkids #winterscienceexperimentsforkids
  • In a bowl combine one teaspoon of white paint with one cup of water.  
  • Mix until the paint is dissolved.  This will essentially give you white water.

  • Once mixed pour the "white water" into the jar, leaving a little room at the top.  
  • Have kids sprinkle in glitter.  
  • Add blue food coloring if desired.
  • Then, wait for the glitter and water to settle at the bottom of the jar.

Once the water is settled it is time to make the snow storm! This was my kids favorite part of course!

Making the Snow Storm


  • Take an alka seltzer tablet and break it into pieces.  
  • Then, have the kids drop the pieces into the jar and watch what happens.....

Rosie and Jewel were in awe!  Each time the storm settled they added more Alka Seltzer so that they could watch it again.

The Science Behind the Fun
  • Talk about real snow storms.  
  • Why does it snow?  
  • What causes snow to form?  
  • Why does the alka-seltzer make the contents in the jar "fizz"?
After the girls were done making their snow storm I asked them these questions, and then we surfed the internet together to find the answers.

A tip: You can find baby oil, white glitter, and generic Alka Seltzer at the dollar store.
