This is an interesting experiment--for kids and adults alike--using basic supplies. Watch how the colors slowly creep up the paper towel strips, like magic!

How We Did It

Magic Marker Color Experiment
Cut the paper towel into ~1 inch strips.

Draw a line towards the bottom of the strip, about 1 inch from the end. Use different colors for each strip.

Magic Marker Color Experiment
Add some water to the cups.

Carefully place the paper strip into the water. The end with the color line should be in the water, but only the tip of the paper towel should touch the water.

My child and I completed Magic Marker Color Experiment . We had fun and they loved to see how far the colors got on the paper towel!

This is a lot of fun - it was interesting to try a bunch of colors and see how some separated better than others.
