1. Separate your Skittles into the different colors. Place 8 or more Skittles of the same color in each small plastic cup.
2. Fill each small cup up about half of the way full with warm water. You can use cold water if you prefer, but it will take longer for the color to leach out of the Skittles.
3. Let the Skittles sit in the water for a few moments, and then stir to mix the color well. At this point, you can either remove the candies from the cups with a spoon or leave them. They will do no harm if left in the cups, but can cause a film on top of the water when the candies start to disintegrate.
4. Use your Skittle watercolors like any other watercolor paints. Let the kids enjoy dipping their paint brushes into the various colors. Print out the free Easter coloring sheet to let them have a little holiday fun too.
