NAILED IT OR FAILED IT: Creating a Snow Storm in a Jar

You can create magic with some baby oil, paint, water, and... heartburn medication!

Storm Track 8 is not forecasting any big snow storms any time soon, so we're making our own... in a jar!

All you need for this magical experiment is baby oil, water, white paint, some glitter, and - the random ingredient - Alka Seltzer tablets! After you fill your jar about 3/4 of the way with baby oil, mix a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of white paint, pour that and the glitter into your jar, let it settle, then break up a tablet of Alka Seltzer and watch what happens! It's the perfect way to create a winter wonderland - in the warmth of your home.
