Homemade Snow!

This project requires very few materials

Here’s what you need:

  • ✔ 1 1/2 cups baking soda
  • ✔ 1/2 cup hair conditioner
  • ✔ Glitter (optional)


  1. Mix baking soda and conditioner (add more conditioner to make it more moist or more baking soda to make it fluffier).
  2. Play!

Thought provoking questions to ask your scientist:

  1. What is snow made of?
  2. Where does snow come from?
  3. How tall can you build your snowman before it falls over? (use a ruler and measure)
