This wacky experiment took an unexpected turn this morning, as we woke up to find our split carnation broken completely in half and lying on the counter. But, we did not give up. We cut another white flower down the center and this time placed it in half green and half purple water.
Why did we try purple again? Well, over night, before the flower broke, our split flower had soaked up the blue dye but not the purple dye. We were excited to see a purple carnation! Since my kids both love the color purple, we thought we'd give it another go!
This is what the set-up looked like. Since we had to start over again, we'll have to wait a bit to see some results. These things take time!
