What will happen when water is added to the skittles?​

MaterialsProcedure (Directions)

  • Skittles or other color coated candy
  • Bowl/Plate
  • Water
  • Cup


  1. Gather your materials
  2. Fill a cup with water
  3. Create a design with your skittles by placing them on plate.
  4. Pour your water on the plate.
  5. Make observations


I learned that

Skittles are made with colourful dyes and sugar. The water dissolves this dye and sugar and they move towards a place where there is less dye and sugar.

What Happened?

We call this process diffusion. Diffusion is the movement of particles (in this case, sugar) from a space of higher concentration (where you put the skittles) to a place of lower concentration (where there are no skittles).
