Coloring Flowers: A summer project for your budding artists
It is now August and the newness of summer vacation has officially warn off. This is apparent, as the words, "I'm bored" are muttered every half hour around our house. If you can relate, here is a little project you can have your kiddos tackle that is simple, and inexpensive (and every time you hear those dreaded words...you can remind them to go check their flowers).
First, you'll need to gather your supplies:
- White flowers...or weeds (we used Queen Anne's Lace (left over from this post about saving money on home decor by bringing the outside in)
- Food Coloring
Pour an inch or two of the water into the cups.
Add approximately 10 drops of food coloring in each cup.
Stir the water until the food coloring is fully mixed.
Snip the ends off of the stems, set in the cups, and wait.
Stand back and admire your newly colored flowers, make a colorful bouquet for their bedrooms, and see if they can explain why the flowers changed colors.
