Sponge Toss Water Activity
This sponge toss water activity is a great way for kids or adults to cool off this summer. It's super easy and inexpensive to put together and works great for group or family activities.
Now it is possible to decorate with artificial snow that looks perfectly realistic, is cold and wet to the touch, but does not melt. The last two decades have brought new technologies for just about everything we use, including fake snow. Forget about shredded Styrofoam or plastic or cotton batting, because they are now a thing of the past. With instant snow you can be creative in ways you only could dream of before.
How do you make instant snow? Using fake instant snow powder, the process is as simple as can be and takes only a few seconds. This unique polymer powder, first introduced in Japan for indoor snowboard parks more than 20 years ago, is inexpensive and easy to use. Imagine this: add some powder to an empty container, pour in some water, and even before you finish pouring, the powder will begin erupting into fluffy, white snow that looks completely real and is cool and wet to the touch! One tablespoon of powder will erupt into a quart of snow, and one measuring cup will yield two or more gallons in just a few seconds. No stirring or mixing is needed, and even large commercial quantities can be up and running in an hour or less.
Once mixed, you can scoop or dump the snow wherever you want it and decorate your home, office or event just like professional photographers and filmmakers do. Pile it up as high as you want, or spread it out to make a large play area, and you will quickly see that the possibilities are endless. Need some more? Repeat the same process until you have all you need.
You can create an entire winter wonderland in a large room, office, business or backyard with a hose, a few buckets, and a few minutes of your time. Large Christmas themed events attended by hundreds of people can be up and running in less than an hour. If your event runs more than a day or two, just spray the instant snow with water from time to time to keep it fresh, and use ice water or ice cubes to keep your snow cold. Because the instant snow is mostly water, and water at room temperature always feels cool to the skin, your snow will feel cool to the touch even without any maintenance.
Best of all, your snow won't melt or bleed out onto any surface. Now you can really let your imagination run wild when you want to decorate with snow, your snow will look so real everyone will want to take some home, leaving you with nothing to clean up.
