ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — In this episode of Science with Shields, Christy Shields shows you how to make fake snow!
What you need:
- Mixing Bowl
- Shaving Cream
- Corn Starch
- Food Coloring
Stick one cup of corn starch into your mixing bowl. Next, stick a cup of shaving cream into the mixing bowl. Then add three drops of blue food coloring to the mixing bowl. Start by mixing these three ingredients with a spoon, eventually you will have to mix with your hands. (This does get a bit messy!) The mixture should become mold-able or pack-able just like snow!
The shaving cream has a lot of little air bubbles in it and the corn starch is a powdery substance. When the two mix together, the powdery corn starch fills in the air bubble holes in the shaving cream. This reaction will make the mixture mold-able and very similar to “snow!”
If you make any creations or snow people with your fake snow, make sure to use the #sciencewithshields and share them!
