Colorful Carnations

God has created a beautiful, colorful world for us to enjoy.  Let’s see if we can make some colored flowers.

Supplies needed:

White carnations

small clear glasses or vases

6-8 drops of different colored food coloring

Cut the carnation stems at an angle 5 inches away from the flower

Fill glasses with 3 inches of water and stir in food color

Place each flower in different color of water

After 24 hours the tips of the flower petals will have a light tint of color.  The longer they stay in the water the brighter the color will be.


This works with celery stalks also…try other things and see if it works.
