You should use anhydrous sodium sulfate. It's a white powder but changes to bright blue when in contact with water. Our teacher used it to demonstrate how there is water in soda, orange juice, apples, etc...

You can create many simple science experiments, such as those relating to light, sound, water, color, chemistry or electricity just by gathering simple materials such as glass, paper, plastic, cardboard, salt, vinegar to name some. An example is making tissue paper rise by friction of a comb.

An experiment always has a measurable outcome variable and one experimental variable; outcomes are compared across groups defined by the experimental variables. Compare the height of seedlings by the amount of water or sunlight they get, activity level of classroom animals by temperature, or heat of objects beneath black or white paper. Be sure to name the variables.
