Cool science experiment for kids! Rainbow Roses Get white or cream colored long stem roses. (Carnations work well too). Cut the stem according to the picture, you will then place 4 glasses of food color dyed water together. Put one piece of stem per color and allow the flower to soak up different colors.
Lily-of-the Valley! My favorite flower! Scrumptiously fragrant, tiny and delicate (unlike me!) and tres cher (very expensive) to buy as a cut flower. Limited season availability. Oh! It is also the Flower for the Month of May!
HOW TO MAKE A RAINBOW ROSE: Obtain a perfect white rose with 8-9 inches stem. Cut the end of the stem into 4 equal parts and up 6 inches. Dip the 4 stems ends into 4 cups of food coloring & wait for 24 hours. I suggest these color combinations: red-blue-green-yellow... violet-red-blue-yellow... or yellow-purple-grey-blue.
