Snowstorm in a Jar

I love to teach about the winter especially snow! I love the snow!

There are so many amazing books to teach your kiddos about snow and I will be writing another blog post about those! Today I am going to share the science activity I live to do with my kids and that is a snowstorm in a jar! 

To make a snow storm in a jar you will need the following materials:

A glass jar
Baby oil
White paint (I use finger paint)
Iridescent glitter ( I use yellow I like the effect)
Alka seltzer 


Fill jar halfway with baby oil.
In a separate bowl, mix warm water and white paint together.  Then add lots of glitter to the paint mixture and stir. 
Add paint mixture to the jar. Fill to about 1/2 inch from the top. 
Wait until the mixture separates and the paint and glitter are resting on the bottom and the baby oil is sitting in the top.
Add 1 or 2 alka seltzer tablets and cover.
Watch the storm Vega in to brew! 

I hope your kids love it as much as mine do!!!
