ABC Series - F is for Flowers

Continuing with our ABC series this week we looked at flowers and the letter F.  I originally came across the idea of trying to dye flowers different colours from an old book I had forgotten I had. 

100 Things for Kids to Make and Do

You can purchase a second-hand copy from Amazon.

You will need:

Some white flowers, we used carnations and chrysanthemums
Some jam jars or pots
Some food colouring or some water soluble ink.

This morning when we woke up some of out flowers had started to change colours.  Unfortunately the Red and the Yellow ones haven't worked as well but the blue ones looked really pretty.  I am hoping that they will go a bit darker.
