Coloring Flowers

Here's a cool science experiment you can easily do at home.  You simply need flowers of some kind, water, and food coloring.  Grab a couple of glasses or jars and fill them with water.  Drop a couple of drops of food coloring in each jar (different color in each jar).  Then put in a flower or two and wait.  We did two jars (blue and green water) and grabbed a couple of peonies from the backyard.

By the next morning, the tips of the petals were colored!

Very cool!  You can test this out yourself and experiment with different types of flowers.  Lighter colored petals will work much better than darker colored petals.  Does a certain type of flower color more easily than another?  Find out!
