3/365 Skittle Science

An easy, fun and very colourful science experiment that can be done at home with the children.

All you need is a packet of skittles, warm water and a white plate.

  • Arrange the skittles alternating the coloyrs around the edge of the plate. We did a circle but you could do any shape. Be as creative as you want.
  • Pour water into the middle until it reaches the skittles
  • Sit back and watch the bright, vibrant colours of the rainbow appear

As the water hits the skittles the colouring comes away and mixes in with the water.

What colour reaches the middle first?
