Skittles Color Blending Experiment


– white plate

– one bag of Skittles American Mix

– ½ cup warm water


1. Set plate on a flat surface.

2. Open the Skittles American Mix and sort out the light blue. You will only need about 1/4rd of the bag.

3. Arrange the Skittles in a red and blue star pattern: Start by using a white Skittle (this will be the middle of the star), add 5 blue Skittles around the white, then add another 5 blue Skittles coming off of those 5 to create a star. Repeat with the red Skittles.

4. Add the ½ cup of warm water slowly, pouring it onto the plate not directly onto the skittles.

5. Watch your Red and Blue stars expand like fireworks!
