Turn white flowers into a rainbow bouquet! As flowers lose water to evaporation, they pull more water up through their stems. When food coloring is added to the water, the blossoms make an amazing transformation.
Rainbow Bouquet
What You’ll Need
  • A few white flowers
  • Plastic cups or drinking glasses
  • Food coloring
  • Vase
What You'll Do

1. Trim the flower stems so that they will fit in a cup of water.

2. Place the flower stems directly into a vase of water to keep the blossoms from drying out.

3. In each cup, mix about one part food coloring with two parts water. (You will use less than one-third of a bottle of food coloring in each cup.)

4. Place the stems of a few of the flowers into each cup of colored water.

5. Let the flowers stand in the colored water for several hours.

6. Arrange the colorful flowers in a vase of clear water.
