You take a cup of boiling water and throw it in the air; the extreme temperature difference causes it to to turn to "snow" and then you end up with a whole lot of steam. As soon as he saw this, he wanted to show the boys so we started our activity.
|hubby "making" snow - our first attempt|
The next time, we tried adding food colouring to the water, but it didn't show up. It did, however, stain the ground/snow with the green!
|our 2nd attempt, with the food colouring - although you can't tell|
It was really neat to see, and the kids had a lot of fun. Just make sure that it is an adult doing it because of the boiling water!
ETA: Also - please make sure you are not doing it on a windy day, and make sure to throw it AWAY from you. I have just been reading lots of people have been burning themselves by throwing it on windy days
