More recently, our parents and their grandparents, decorating houses for the New Year, laid cotton wool imitating snow under the trees and between the windows. It looked not that not attractive, but the snow only partially resembled. Nowadays, we can make artificial snow that will look like real and even be cold.
First, we'll have to get some diapers. Yes, yes, ordinary diapers, because they contain the main component that we need when creating artificial snow - sodium polyacrylate. It is not sold in stores in kind, but it is abundant in diapers. One size 5 diaper will make two or three handfuls of artificial snow.
Having taken a sufficient number of diapers, you will have to carefully cut them with scissors and pour the contents - the same sodium polyacrylate - into a previously prepared container. For these purposes, you can take a bucket or a basin, or get by with a smaller container - everything will depend on how much snow you want to end up with.
After the contents of the diapers are poured into the container, pour some water into it, stir, and wait for a while until the sodium polyacrylate absorbs the liquid. If the "snow" looks dry, add some more water and stir again. And so on until the contents of the container look like real snow.
To make artificial snow look like real snow, not only externally, but also to the touch, it is enough to place it in the refrigerator. If the container is too large - in the cold. The main thing is that the temperature is not below zero - in this case, the water will freeze, and our artificial snow will simply turn into ice.
Now that the artificial snow is ready, you can decorate the Christmas tree with it for the New Year, or have fun with your friends. This is especially true in the summer, when real snow cannot be found!
