Color Changing Carnations. A visually appealing Science activity. Also a great way for kids to learn how water is absorbed by plants and how it travels through the different parts of a flower.

Love this classic color changing flower experiment for kids! White carnations or daisies with food color. Water will soak up and color flowers. Learn how flowers "drink" water
