Skittle Painting

July 28, 2011

After a few fun “experiments” with Daddy, Hana Kate has been fascinated with things that dissolve. So this morning we combined that interest with her love for painting. We did Skittle painting, and got to see how crazy all that food coloring is!

Just a few bowls of water, and we added the Skittles and watched them dissolve and give us watercolors. Hana Kate even tasted it to see what the “paint” was like. 🙂

Now I get to see how washable our Skittle paints are! If it’s not, I guess I can console myself with the fact those shorts were 10 cents at a yard sale. 😉.

    What a great idea! I think my own kid would be hard-pressed to resist eating the skittles before they dissolved, though. 🙂

    I let them eat all the yellow ones. And I ate the purple ones. 😉

    What a great idea. Matt would have to disagree seeing how skittles are one of his favorite things to each. He would think it’s a total waste of good food.

      Ha! 🙂 Well, then he could drink the Skittle juice afterwards.
