Snow- Ground Cover
Snow Party for Children

Tools needed

   Drill – attached a long paddle bit                               
   5 gallon buckets
   Measuring cup                                                                                                                            
   Clear plastic – 12 X 20 or larger                                  
   Pool noodles (optional)                                               

Heavy duty extension cord (3 prong)
Water hose
White Tarp 10 X 20
Duct Tape (optional)



1.  Spread the white tarp on the ground and then place your clear plastic on top for easy clean up,
     the larger the clear plastic is the easier for clean up.

2.  Optional: You can tape pool noodles together and place them underneath the borders of the tarp,
     roll them to create border edge.  Using the duct tape, roll into the liner and tape each down.
    This help to hold the ground cover snow in the 12x15 contained area. 
    Use 30 pounds of snow polymer powder to cover this area with snow approximately 1 inch thick.

3.  Line your buckets up and fill them with water 5”-6” from the top of the bucket.

4.  Add about 1 to 1.5 cups of the powder snow into your bucket with water.
     Start with 1 cup and then add another ˝ cup if necessary.

5.  Mix each 5 gallon bucket with the paddle bit until it is the consistency you like for your snow ground cover.
     Toss the mixed bucket onto the prepared tarp area and then move onto your next bucket to stir.
      It will take about 45 minutes – 1 hour to mix and spread the ground cover snow out onto the tarp.
     An assembly line works well.

     Keep mixing and spreading the snow ground cover until all of the powder snow mixtures is gone.
     Depending on how many cups of snow powder you use will determine how big of an area it will cover.
      (Pre-mixing the buckets before using the paddle bit seems to help the assembly line move faster)

6.  When you are finished you can separate the clear plastic from the tarp and pool noodles and simple roll
      up the clear plastic with the snow mixture and throw away in the trash.  Clean and pack up the white tarp.

7.  Complete set up time from start to finish will take around 1-2 hours to complete.
     Start early and have your plan ready.  Ask questions before and you will have a great time.

  Please remind the children NOT to EAT the snow, and to be very careful because it is very
    SLIPPERY and YES their clothes are going to get wet; but they are going to have a BLAST!
