Insta Snow, Insta Success!

Hello. I’m Loretta Ehrhart, Director of Product Development for Discount School Supply. Although developing new products is my passion, I have a lot of fun with the products we already have. Here’s an example:

Who needs lampshades? “Instant snow” can be the hit of your next party! Recently my son Rainier was invited to a friend's 5th birthday party. His mom asked me if I could bring an activity for the kids to do. "Of course," I said. "I work for Discount School Supply!"

So, I purchased lots of Insta-Snow™, clear plastic party cups a>and some tropical colors of Liquid Watercolor™ I put Rainier's sand and water table and the other goodies in the back of the truck, arrived early to set up, and the rest is birthday party history!

The party guests got to choose a color and mix their own snow. Their eyes grew wide with wonder as they watched the snow magically puff up when mixed with colored water. Insta-Snow™ is already cool, but colored snow is really something altogether amazing – especially for children who rarely get to see any snow at all. There was actually a line at the table, and kids were mixing snow and then getting right back in line to try another color.

Soon the sand and water table was filled with tropical-colored snow drifts. When all the snow had been mixed, the children kept returning to the table to run their hands through the cool, wet, yet dry-feeling snow.

Lots of parents asked questions about the product and I got to tell them all to check out the Discount School Supply Web site! I know that teachers love it for their classrooms, too. And as for Rainier and me, we are getting to be pretty popular party guests.
