We went to Lakewood Floral and picked up a couple of white carnations to use in our Valentine's day science project. We put the flowers in a vase with red food coloring in the water. I told Kailyn only that we needed to watch the flowers and see if they changed. I then asked her what she thought might change and she was pretty educated in her answer! She told us that the water would go up into the flower and the flower would change! Not a bad answer for a three year old:) At least twice last night she walked up to the table and got really excited claiming that her flower had changed! We took that opportunity to explain that it would take time for it to really change! She is so proud of her flowers (as you can tell from the picture).
