This is a good activity to show your child how plants drink water through their stalks and where the water goes.Materials
- Clear glass or vase
- Food coloring
- White carnation or daisy
- Fill a clear glass or vase halfway with water and add enough food coloring to tint the water a bright color.
- Add a white carnation or daisy and watch the flower change color over the next few hours.
- You can also do this experiment with celery. In fact, this may be great way to encourage a reluctant eater. After all, purple celery is bound to taste better than the green variety!
