Flower Coloring Experiment

Flower Coloring Experiment

We have seen loves of different flower coloring experiments. Plus a ton of water walking experiments. We thought we would try two different color with flowers. You can see our flower coloring from last year here.

What you need: white flower, two colors of dye, two clear glasses, knife (parent use only to cut stems) and rubber bands.

Flower Coloring Experiment

We started with plan white flowers that had the stems trimmed and split up the middle.

We picked two colors to dye the flowers: red and blue. Three sets were cut up the middle and two were left to put in just one color.

We looked carefully at the white flowers.

Within a few hours we noticed the blue right away. The red did not show up as much. For the red we had to look really close.

We noticed the next morning the flowers were starting to droop a little bit. Some had nice color and others had color we could see only on one side.

We looked at the flowers that came out of a single color. We saw how bright the colors were. We liked looking at the stripes in the flowers.

When we started this we had hoped to get two colors on one flower. As we started to look at the flower we thought maybe we had failed. Then we saw a few examples of it. Here is some of the things we saw:

  • Two colors in a stem
  • Colors on different sides of the flower
  • Red Strip in the middle of the blue

  1. I love how this experiment looked at the stems. We have tried this and only really looked at the flowers.

      We wanted to see what flowers got what colors. We did a lot of cutting up of the flowers that pictures were not taken of. It was lots of fun! Some had both colors when we thought it would be just one color.
