What is a fun experiment for kids?

A Neat Experiment

Here is a fun experiment to teach kids about how water and nutrients travel to different parts of a plant. Place a celery stalk in water. Then, place a few drops of food coloring into the water. Within minutes you will see the color begin to move up the plant stalk. I use red coloring as it provides a good contrast to the green of the celery.
