Preschool Science Project

We did a fun experiment this week using Skittles. The kids made a color pattern out of Skittles and then using a dropper they added water to see what would happen. Some of the colors mixed and made brown. We also introduced the word "dissolve" because that is what the water did to the candy. At the end everybody ate their science project!
