Dye your Daisies
food coloring fresh white daisies or celery
A fun way to help your child visualize how plants use water is to add a few drops of food coloring to a glass of water, then place a white daisy into the glass. Over the next few days the daisy will change colors as it "drinks" the water. Experiment using different colors. This activity also works with a white carnation or a stalk of celery.
