The Skittles Experiment For Toddlers

A simple but fun little science experiment for toddlers that they will really enjoy. It takes minimal effort but will keep toddlers engaged for a while. This example comes from New Young Mum.

You will need:

  • 2 Bags of Skittles
  • Small White Plate
  • Warm Water
  • Coloured Bowls for Sorting (optional)

First tip all the skittles out into a big bowl and start sorting out the colours into the correct bowls. Once all the Skittles are sorted out, start laying them out in different patterns around the plate.

You may want to use all the colours for the first one just to show your child what it will do. All you need to do is put down the skittles then tip over a cup off warm water until the skittles are just covered. Then watch the magic happen!
