Experiment time

I have been wanting to do this for a while.

I would have waited until Springtime but this morning

myself and the boys were chatting about flamingos

(as you do when you hang out with 4 year olds)

and we were talking about how they are coloured pink when

I remembered this experiment and so of course we had to try it out.

As this was a spontaneous middle of Winter experiment

we were extremely lucky to find these little white flowers

hiding in a corner of the garden.

What we used

A jug of water

Food colouring

Little white flowers

What we did

I had a look around the house and found some containers to use as vases for the flowers.

I poured some colour into the lid and the boys poured the colour into the little vases and then they added water.

Spills were inevitable.

Next they put a flower in each vase and then we put them in the window.

Stay tuned to see what happens….
