Fake snow

A simple guide to making fake snow. It is non-toxic, feels cool, lasts for days, and looks like to the real thing.


You will need:

  • Sodium polyacrylate which you can in find disposable nappies or as crystals in a garden centre
  • Water





Add water to the sodium polyacrylate


Mix to a gel


Continue to add water to the mix until you achieve your desired 'wetness' of the snow



  • Sodium polyacrylate 'snow' feels cool to the touch because it is mainly water. If you want to add more realism to the fake snow, you can refrigerate or freeze it. The gel will not melt. If it dries out, you can rehydrate it by adding water.
