I said yesterday I took my boys to the the playground. I mentioned that they gave me a flower. What I didn’t mention was that my 3 year old decided to pick ALL of the flowers growing in the park.
My 1 year old also decided to bring me flowers. Just like his big brother.
Anyway, I decided that since the flowers had been taken we had better put them to good use.
We divided them into 4 glasses of water coloured with food colouring and waited to see if they would take up the colour. I added a few white roses from the garden as I knew they would take the colour and wasn’t sure how well jonquils would go.
Several hours later we noticed a slight change and got all excited.
The roses were taking up the colour faster than the jonquils.
We left them over night and this morning we had a rainbow!
The boys were very excited their experiment had worked! Hopefully we have instilled in them a desire to be curious and inventive for life!!
…well its a start.
Mum used it as an opportunity to take photos of course.
Happy to be removing the stinky jonquils from the living room.
