Deposit a white rose in a drinking glass filled with a mixture of water and food coloring. Observe the changes that will occur hourly. Children will be impressed to see the rose change color.

Role playAdd plastic roses to your role play area. Children will have fun preparing beautiful bouquets and surprising their friends.
FoodPurchase roses that weren't treated with toxic chemicals or products. Let children taste rose petals.
