Instant snow?

i was thinking about setting up a drop in thing with a box over the summer, and need something to put on my carpet, do you think that instant snow stuff would work, or what do you think would work?

apparently is just sodium polyacrylate, and when you put water into it, it turns into "snow"

Maybe, but if there is an indoor ice skate rink, go to the back and find the left over snow from the zamboni

nope, if you get enough and keep a thick layer it will last, i've had it last a day and night.

Best idea is to keep all the snow in one big pile and keep putting more on when it melts

yeah it works really well actually. We did this back in iowa for the last few years before i moved to CO.

Just get more then you think you need, we just got the 50 gallon bulk order. IF you are careful with your outdoor carpet you can roll up the snow after it dries out and turns back to powder so you can just add water and do it again later. If its windy the powder will blow away =(
