Take a bag of Skittles candy and line them up around the outside of the center of a plate being careful to mix the colors up.  Pour a cup of water into the center of the plate until it the water covers at least part of all the Skittles.  Set it aside and come back later.  Here is a video demonstration:

Have a conversation with your family.

  • What do you notice about the colors?
  • How is that like your family?
    • In your family, what color are you?  
    • What colors represent the others in your family?  
    • How do they blend together? 
    • How does everyone in your family contribute to make your family what it is?
  • How do offer what is vibrant about you to the people around you?
  • How does your family make the world around you a better place?
