Filled the sand table up with a couple bags of flour and this is our snow. I don't keep this center open all day due to the mess, but when the lid is off everyone in the room is white. There is a layer of white in the classroom and outside. Its all worth the fun. A little bit of sweeping and a wet towel to wipe off stuff and then we start all over again the next day with the snow. I think this is their favorite thing to do right now.
