I have been meaning to get some Queen Anne's Lace to try this forever but never saw it in the store. Today on a walk it was everywhere, apparently I am the only person who didn't know it grew wild.
Simple science experiments like this are a wonderful way to introduce your child to experiments. I broke it down for my 2 year old simply by asking what will happen if... then asking why and filling in any gaps they may have. You will probably be surprised how much they will figure out by doing simple science.
1. Gather your materials. You will need some Queen Anne's Lace, a few glass jars, water and food coloring.
2. Drop your food coloring in the jars.
3. Add your water.
4. Put in your flowers.
5. Pop them in the sun and wait.
It didn't take long for ours to change colors, the blue ones were blue in about an hour, the green turned a little slower and the purple well, they are still white.
