3 awesome experiments with food

1. Dissolving skittles

Explore the science with skittles. Just toss them into the water and wait what happens. These candies are covered with food coloring and sugar. When the skittles are underwater, the colored coating dissolves spreading through the liquid. The color not only dissolves but also diffuses through the water, making it the color of the skittle. The result looks unbelievable, so give this trick a try!

2. Vinegar and baking soda volcano

This experiment is simple yet impressive. Mix baking soda and vinegar in a plastic bottle hidden inside the volcano to make carbon dioxide turn into gas. Don't forget about red food coloring for the crazy effect. Look at "lava" bursting out of the volcano.

3. Food coloring, oil, and water

This experiment will help your children understand density. Mix equal parts oil and water and then add several drops of food coloring to see what happens. The food coloring drop remains intact until it sinks through the oil, but when it meets the water the color starts to disperse. What is more interesting, the oil remains separate from the water and it floats because of its low density.
