Play around with density using just three kitchen ingredients; food colour, salt and water. This experiment is super easy and fun to do with kids of all ages.
The colour coating on the outside of the Skittles is soluble in water. When the water touches the coating, it dissolves making a solution. If the water touches each of the Skittles at the same time, the solution created by each Skittle has the same density as the solution next to it.
Help your kids to learn about density using this fun and colourful experiment.
