Blizzard In A Can: Create a Blizzard Indoors

By Beth Carlson February 19, 2015
Amaze your kids and stay warm at the same time when you make your own indoor snow blizzard. It’s part science, part craft and all fun!

Here's how.

  • Clear container
  • Baby oil
  • Warm water (enough to fill 1/4 of container)
  • White paint
  • Glitter
  • Alka Seltzer, Airborne or something that fizzes
  1. Fill the clear container 3/4 full of baby oil.
  2. Add some glitter and let it settle.
  3. In a separate small container (approx. 1/4 the size of your clear container), mix a spoonful of white paint and warm water. 
  4. Add the warm water & paint mixture to the baby oil and glitter and let it settle.
  5. Break up the Alka Seltzer into small pieces and add to the mix.
Enjoy your indoor snow blizzard over and over!
