Skittle rainbow science experiment

This colourful science experiment is as easy as 1-2-3 and will keep them amused for as long as you can spare more Skittles.

You will need:

2. Pour over enough warm water to cover all the Skittles and the plate itself.

3. Watch and wait as a rainbow appears on the plate, the colours will move towards the middle and create a whirl of colour.
