Make coloured flowers
Children love to learn and experiment with new things. Science experiments are fun to do and are a great way for children to learn about the world around them. Try this coloured flower experiment with your kids.
What you need:
- food colouring
- plastic cup
- flower, white carnation or celery stalk with leaves
Number of players:
Fill up a plastic cup with water.
Add a few drops of food colouring to the water.
Cut the end off the flower stem or celery stalk.
Put the flower stem or celery stalk in the water.
Over the next six to 12 hours, the food colouring will be drawn up the stem along tiny tubes which are called vessels and the petals of the flower will start to change in colour.
