We recently did a fun learning project with the kids that they both loved. The school unit was roots and stems, so we found something that helped continue the learning at home!
What you’ll need:
-heads of romaine lettuce
-food coloring (not the gel kind, that type won’t work; get the old fashioned kind!)
-a tall glass
Prepare the water by adding a few drops of food coloring until it’s pretty dark and stir. Then cut a leaf off (make a fresh cut) and put in cut side down. Wait 24 hours to see the max it will “drink” up!
Some colors work better than others as you can see here, so have fun experimenting!
