Colored Carnations

What You Need:

White carnations

Flower vase(s)

Food Coloring

Water

Scissors


What to Do:

1. Fill the vase full of water.

2. Add 10-20 drops of food coloring to the water, the more color the brighter the flower will be. You can make as many different colored carnations as you have vases.

3. Use a pair of scissors to trim the end of the stem at an angle. (You should get a parent to do this part.)

4. Put a flower in the vase and let it sit for 24 hours, or until it reaches the desired color.

5. Remove the flowers from the colored water and place in a vase with plain water.
