Flower Science for Kids
Flower Science Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten
This is a beautiful hands-on flower experiment to start teaching your children about flowers and how they thrive.
You’ll want to start with white flowers. This time, We chose daisies because they are sweet and remind us of spring.
Cut the ends of the stem to fit your vase and so your flowers can absorb the water better.
Squeezing the bottles of food coloring works your child’s hand muscles, which is perfect for building fine motor skills.

A week later, the flowers are full of life, and the children enjoy watching them change daily.
Enjoy the flower changing process and talk to your children about what they see.
This is always a lovely flower experiment that everyone can enjoy. The daisies took about 10 days to show full color change, but it was worth the wait.
