Snowstorm In a Jar...

B and Mel have been into science experiments lately so when I saw this experiment floating around the internet I knew I wanted to try it with them.  The plus side was, we had all except one of these ingredients at our house.  They were pretty excited to hear that we were going to create our own snowstorm considering we haven't had very much snow.  However, the girls missed three days of school due to extreme cold conditions.  The kind of cold that our family in Minnesota laughs about;).


You will need:

warm water
white paint
baby oil
Alka Seltzer
jar or glass
glitter (optional)
 Begin by filling a jar about 3/4 of the way with baby oil.  Then place warm water in a large bowl and stir in some paint.  It doesn't take a lot of paint, just enough to color the water white.  Stir in some glitter.
 Carefully add the paint mixture to the water leaving about 3 inches of head space...

 Break the Alka-Seltzer tablet into fourths and place 1/4 in the jar and wait (it doesn't take long)...
 And enjoy the snowstorm...



When the storm stops, put another tablet in the jar and start another storm.

Here is a video of our snowstorm in a jar.  I couldn't get the video turned so I apologize.:)
