Ever wondered how to get snow inside the classroom for the students without it melting? Be sure to look at wonder #1141 with the children to find out what happens to melted snow. Well here is a great recipe to create snow. Add it to the sensory table for snow much fun all winter! The children will thank you!


  • One large bowl:
  • 2 cups cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • glitter (silver)


  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Shape.
  • Store in a bowl with a lid or keep in the sensory table (it has a lid).
  • Replenish as necessary by following the steps above.

This is a great accompaniment to the read aloud, The Biggest Snowball Ever.
