Winter & Snow Science Experiments

snow winter science experiments

I have only seen snow about three times in my life… that I can remember. I am a girl raised in the deep south, and if snow is in the forecast, there is a run on milk and bread. Tow trucks are called out in masses. The mall closes. It’s breaking news.

When I was in middle school, I even wrote a little poem about Southern Snow…

Snow in the South is especially rare.
You really must freeze it and handle with care.
As it falls to the ground, you know it won’t last.
Be careful. Don’t blink. It melts just that fast!

So, when I put together this list of winter science experiments and resources, they truly are not for my family but for my friends around the globe who actually know what snow looks like and can appreciate it without calling emergency responders when the first flakes land.

Let's Get Organized!


  1. What FUN experiments! I grew up with lots of snow and can’t imagine not having played in it often. I prefer warmer temps still today though. =)

  2. Great ideas! Thanks :) We live in the deep south too but we’ve been blessed to get snow in March a couple of years. I really like Borax Snowflakes :).

    • It snowed a few years ago in February. Now our oldest expects it to snow on that date in February. Bless her heart. I told her that she will need to move north. ;)

  3. Some cool ideas here, might make us feel a little cooler here in Australias hot summer!

  4. Great round up of snowy science. I’ve seen plenty of snow when I was growing up in Belarus and then later in New York, and I am quite happy not to have it here in Silicon Valley :) Thanks for sharing with Afterschool!

  5. I love hearing about new science experiments and I found some here! Thanks for sharing!

  6. These are great experiments. I can’t wait to try frozen bubbles.

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

  7. I grew up with snow, but now live near Seattle and almost never see it anymore. I love your collection of ideas! Thanks for sharing at After School!!

  8. Thanks for this great round up! I featured it in my post today for the After School Linky.
