Melting Sneezy Activity
Whether you live on an icy tundra or in the middle of a desert, we’ve got winter activities for everyone. This melting snowman science experiment is perfect for pre-k and lower elementary grades, offering both a sensory experience and the chance to explore some basic chemistry. All you’ll need is a few items you probably already have in your pantry.
First, mix a cup of baking soda (and glitter, if you so desire) with water. You want enough water so that the baking soda can stick together enough to form a loose ball. Pour a little water in at a time until you hit the sweet spot. With your hands, pack your mixture into a “snow” ball. I cut a carrot into the shape of a tiny nose and pushed some googly eyes into my snowman just for an extra level of whimsy. Then, gently wrap your snowman in cling wrap and let sit in the freezer for at least two hours.
When it’s time to commence with the melting, prepare a half-cup or more of white vinegar and your eye dropper. For some more fun, put a few drops of blue food coloring
in your vinegar. Unwrap your snowman and place him in a shallow bowl or casserole dish. For an extra-frozen snowman, warm up your vinegar or let your snowman sit out for a few minutes.
Let your little learner use the dropper to “melt” Sneezy. This is a great opportunity to ask them observation questions.

About the Book and Soundscape
Brrrrr-Choo! Sneezy the Snowman is cold, cold, cold. To warm up, he drinks cocoa, sits in a hot tub, stand neara warm fire – and melts! In spite of that, the children know exactly what to do to rebuild him.
Novel Effect brings a friendly, upbeat feel to Sneezy the Snowman with its poppy, friendly electronic piano and synth bass. See if students can find these fun soundscape tidbits while listening:
- The soundscape designers used two effects on the voice actor to create the Snowman puddle voice.
- Using a tremolo, the designers mimicked how water might move when Sneezy talks as a puddle.
- In order to create the illusion that Sneezy is under water, the soundscape designers applied a low pass to eliminate high frequencies.
Download the Novel Effect App to bring stories to life with music and sounds that respond to your voice.
