A Skittle Rainbow! - Guppy's Early Learning Centres

A Skittle Rainbow!

Join Miss Jade as she makes a rainbow out of Skittles.

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.

Want to follow along at home? What you will need:

  • 1 pkt Skittles
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • White plate

Arrange the Skittles in a single row coloured pattern around the edge of the plate. Pour over enough warm water to cover all the Skittles and the plate itself.

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