Skittles Paintings with Kyla and Vada – Fun craft for the days off school!

After seeing some Skittles paintings on the internet, Vada wanted to give it a go in a more creative way then just painting with the Skittles colored water. All the tutorials we found had the Skittles in a bowl of water, and then you used the colored water as paint, but we wanted to try actually using the Skittles on the paper.
