A friend in Taiwan turned us onto this great homeschool experiment. Ours didn't come out as red as hers, but the turquoise was beautiful. Lots of fun! I'm not sure Allen could explain what capillary action *is*, but at least he knows that's *what* gets the water up there...

Journaling reads: "How does a tree manage to get water alllll the way up to its teeny tiny top branches, even though water weighs a whole lot? We used some celery, some food dye, water, and about 12 hours to find out. Seeing the leaves change color was fun!"
