How much water is in snow?

With how much snow is in Snowmen at Night, we knew we needed to find out a little more about it! We love science experiments where the kids can see a cause and effect happen right before their eyes, and this is one of those!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Have each child mark a line on their jar with dry erase marker
  2. Go out side and fill their jar with snow up to the line
  3. Place the jar somewhere you can see the snow melt
  4. When all the snow is melted, check the water line, compared with the snow line! Are they the same?

It’s all about density. And the fun part is, not all snow has the same density! So you can try this multiple times throughout the winter to see which snowfall is the most dense. This would also be a great experiment to go along with talking about the water cycle! Happy experimenting!
