Here is a fun and easy Flower Coloring Experiment my toddler and I did recently.  It was a perfect science experiment to show my daughter how flowers drink water, and how they can change colors as well.  We got this Flower Coloring Experiment idea from here.

For this Flower Coloring Experiment you will need:

 

  • 24 hours
  • white roses (you can use different kind of flowers but they must be white color 🙂
  • flower vases
  • food coloring(we picked blue and red)
  • water

Instructions:

1. Mix food paint with water.

2. Then pour it into the vase.

3. Cut flower’s stem at an angle, then put it in the vase

4. Observe flower for 24 hours.

CONCLUSION: After 24 hours our roses changed their colors.  As you can see in AFTER  pictures they weren’t colored all the way, I think maybe because we had big flowers and they needed more time to change color.  I explained to Anika that flowers drink water thru the stem, and if we add color to the water the flower will change their color.

Later we tried this experiment again.  We used little flower this time.  It turned into a beautiful  blue flower.
