Default Kindergarten level project for Science Fair

Hi!
I'm hoping someone might have an idea for a simple science fair project for a 6 year old. I've been searching the internet and just haven't found anything appropriate. The projects I have found are either way too complicated or involve buying a silly and expensive kit.

I'd appreciate any help offered!
Thanks!

Well, what sort of area of science are you keen on investigating?

I would suggest for starters, you take a look at the elementary level food science projects in the All Science Fair Projects SEARCH or BROWSE sections. There are some pretty simple ones which you could use. (eg. the popcorn or baking soda volcano projectS)

That's a great idea! Thanks.

We've decided we are going to try doing some food chemistry. We're going to see what paints and dyes we can make from food. It hasn't been easy to find information, but I know we have to either dry the berries, or cook them. If they are dried, we have to grind them to a powder and mix them with a binder. In reading some Native American stuff, I've decided I'm willing to try veg. oil or egg whites as a binder. Some of the other choices they used are...well..unacceptable.

We're are going to try to make the three primary colors. Any ideas for yellow?

We plan to do berries for red, as we have no ox blood on hand! The things they used for yellow are also unacceptable! LOL!

It's that time of year again. We're going to try this project this year. I just wanted to thank you for the idea, again!
