This is a very popular experiment that you see splashed all over Pinterest and it is no surprise given how cheap and easy it is with great results. Plus, you can still eat the Skittles afterwards! YUM!
All you need is
- A bag of Skittles
- A plate (we used white paper plates)
- A jug of water
First, arrange the Skittles around the outer edge of the plate. Then pour some water onto the Skittles. Watch how the water travels to the middle of the plate fetching with it different colours from the Skittles.
The children loved this experiment and gave it a big Thumbs up👍
