Colored Floweres

Coloring flowers, sounds like something you would do with crayons and paper right? Well you would be partly wrong,I found out that you can actually color real flowers!!! Crazy cool huh ;)
So I went out and bought some white carnations and brought them home and had the kids help me ummmm...color them :)
first I had them fill a few cups up with water. Then I had them add a few drops of food coloring (different colors of course )
I then cut the end off the stem and put the flowers in the water. It really didn't take that much time, it was cool how the food coloring literately was sucked up the stem along tiny tubes (called vessels) and this is how the petals of the flower started to change in color.

So Pretty!!!!!
