How do I explain 2 to the power of zero equals 1 to a child

I assume the kid accepts 2×0=0. In other terms:

"Some number times 0 yields the no-changer of plus."

Analoguously:

"Some number to the power 0 yields the no-changer of times."

By no-changer I refer, of course, to the unit element. That this can be added/multiplied to anything without resulting in a change should be accepted. I am unsure wether this approach helps understanding the hierarchy of arithmetic operators or wether you need the hierarchy for understanding the approach.
