Food Color Centerpiece Science Experiment for Kids

Create a table centerpiece with this DIY science activity for kids

Science experiment for kids using a white chrysanthemum in food coloring. A centerpiece idea involving plant anatomy and transpiration.

Add a little of spring to your winter table centerpiece with food coloring while teaching your kids about transpiration and the anatomy of a plant. Learn how water is pulled up to the petals using chrysanthemums, gerberas, or carnations and arrange them into a colorful bouquet!

The Imagination Tree gives a creative step by step instruction to observation and hypothesis that teaches kids how plants transport water to the petals and gives your little botanist the opportunity to see the transformation; leaving you with an assortment of colors to display.
