Basics® Instant Snow turns water into a fluffy white substance that looks like real snow. Simply mix instant snow with water and watch as it expands up to 100x its original size!
- Large 100g pack size will make up to 4.5 liters of instant snow.
- Grows in seconds.
- Non-toxic and safe for ages 4 and up.
- Great for parties, decorations, science fairs and experiments.
How to grow your snow:
Simply keep adding water until you reach your desired consistency. Instant snow will grow up to 100 times its original size. However, we recommend only adding enough water to grow it 8 to 15 times, so that it maintains a good structure.
Each 100g packet should be mixed with between 750ml and 1.5l of water. If you would like your snow to feel soft and fluffy and look most similar to snow, then you should add only 750ml per 100g bag.
You can add more water, but the texture will become less fluffy and the appearance of the snow will become more translucent.
If you add more than 4.5l of water per 100g then the end result will no longer look like snow (it will be mostly translucent and no longer feel fluffy at all).
You don't have to use the whole packet at once. You can try mixing only 10 grams with 75ml of water to begin with.
- Instant snow is made from hydrogel, the same material that's used in water beads.
- Instant snow feels soft and fluffy to the touch. If you squeeze it firmly, then it will feel rubbery.
- Use in a place where cleanup won't be a problem (the instant snow particles are quite fine).
- Instant snow is intended for ages 4 and up. Whilst it is non-toxic it should not be consumed.
- Instant snow is also known as fake snow, Insta-snow and artificial snow.

Items were exactly as described and delivered quickly. Would highly recommend.
Very effective for a Christmas display and a great hit with my 6 year old niece. Also a good price and fast delivery.
So much fun!
My children absolutely loved the product. They loved adding water, watching it grow, the texture and just the idea. It was a win in their eyes! My only minor issues, were the smell and that it was really slippery on the ground. The smell wasn't bad at all, I just didn't like it but the kids didn't mind at all. As expected the kids got some on the concrete, and it became really slippery, again... My children couldn't have cared less. Thank you for an amazing experience!!!
Absolutely love it. The texture and ease of just adding water. Total hit with myself and the kids.
Accurate description and fast delivery
Amazing just how much it expands, great texture and lots of fun!
Lots of fun!
My daughter absolutely loved this snow, it goes a long way too. I also can't believe how fast the postage was! Thanks, would definitely purchase through you again!
So much fun! Kids have spent endless hours playing with the water beads.
Super fast delivery and the product is great! Purchased the beads and the snow for my grandchildren for Christmas. They are going to love them!
Fun but messy!
My kids really enjoyed playing with this snow but it did make a big mess!!! Suggest using it on on an old sheet or something which can be thrown out. Probably more suitable for using as decorations for themed parties etc. The water beads which we also got were absolutely amazing and didnt need so much clean up!
Ordered with water beads. Both arrived super fast especially during level 4 lockdown. Snow and the beads have provided hours of fun while staying home. Thank you!
Wicked product & delivery
Quick & fast delivery. Quality of product is really good!
Love Instant Snow!
Instant snow is a great sensory experience for young ones and so easy to make! It's also great as an object lesson or general rainy day activity. Including some instructions on how to make it (either on the website or the pack) would make it even better. Having made it before, I knew a rough ratio of water to snow mix but for those who haven't, this information would make it even better.
This is cool
A great sensory item to include as an activity at christmas time. Add water and it grows - the kids come back to this time and time again. Will certainly purchase again.
