  • Red skittles
  • A plate or dish
  • Water
  • Heart cookie cutter

We used red skittles only because we couldn’t find valentine specific skittles, but if you can find those, I think they are pink and red, so it would add a whole new aspect to this activity.

We used a pie pan, but a plate that bevels up slightly would work too.

Valentine’s day ideas for preschoolers

Start by putting the skittles along the edge of the plate or dish. Lining the edge with as many skittles as possible is the best. Put the cookie cutter in the middle of the dish.

When you’re ready, pour water over the top of the skittles, slowly. You don’t want to move the skittles, just add a little water to them.

When the bottom of the dish is lined with water, just a thin layer, sit back and watch the magic. The color from the skittles will slowly start moving towards the heart cookie cutter. It looks like sun rays almost. It is so fun to watch.
