Carnation Science Experiment: Rainbows



I did this Experiment for my grade 5 science project. I thought it fit very nicely in with our rainbow theme. You will need glass jars/containers, food coloring and carnations. Just add food coloring to each jar and top with water. Place one carnation in each jar and let the food coloring do it's thing.

About 24 hours later you should get similar results as this:





My new camera is in the shop getting fixed. It was only 4 months old and it broke already! so sorry about the blurry pics I'm using our old, old camera until I get my new one back.


Jada loved watching the flowers change color "hey, what happen mommy?" So funny.

Oh, I remember doing this as a kid at my grandparents' house! I had completely forgotten about it, thanks for reminding me! In fact, we even did some where we split the stem up the middle and put each half in a different colour, and the flowers came out two-toned.

you can also do this with Queen Ann's Lace. we always did as kids. I never would have thought about carnations. I wonder if this will work on white roses... Thank you!
