Smiling like Sunshine: Walking Water

Walking Water

I knew my daughter would be fascinated with this when I  read about it on this inspiring blog.
To make this little experiment all you need is a paper towel, two glasses of water and a few drops of food colouring. (The colour makes it easier for the kids to observe what is happening.)
Fill one of the glasses with coloured water, place it on a higher level. Place a strip of paper towel from the top glass, ensuring it touches the bottom, down to the lower glass.
And then wait...The paper towel will absorb the water and syphon the water into the lower glass.

Defne loved watching the "walking water". A few hours later the lower glass was almost full.
