Skittle Science for the Littles

Here’s a fun skittle science experiment to do with the little ones! They will watch in amazement as the colors spread!

Supplies Needed:

  • Skittles
  • Warm water
  • Cup
  • Plate (medium to large)

Have the children make a circle with different colored skittles on a round plate. (It works the best if the plate is medium to large in diameter.) You can also invert a bowl in the middle of the plate and have the children place the skittles around the bowl. A parent can gently lift the bowl to preserve the circle. Warm up some water in a glass and pour it in the center of the circle until it reaches the candy. Watch the magic!

This is a great introduction to some fascinating science experiments you can create at home.
