This easy and fun science experiment is perfect for kids of all ages. It only requires a few supplies you probably already have at home.
Step #1: We grabbed a pack of Skittles from a stash of leftover candy we had in the pantry, and we arranged them around the edge of the plate.
Step #2: Next, we poured warm water on to the Skittles and watched the magic happen! A beautiful rainbow began to appear in the center of the plate.
