Snowstorm in a Jar

Join Girlstart @ WeatherFest, Sunday February 1st, 2015

New Englanders will be digging themselves out of snow for a while after the recent storm that hit the north however in the south we very rarely get snow. However with a jar, a little baby oil, white paint, water and Alka Seltzer you can make your own “Snowstorm in a Bottle”. Gather your materials and watch how the chemical reaction creates the storm.
