Watch the magic happen with this little experiment...
All you need is some paper and a container of water, but to make it more interesting we always have to add a little colour!
Start by cutting out some paper flowers. You can use this template to help - https://teachbesideme.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/blooming-paper-flowers.pdf
After they are cut out add some colour and patterns using felt tip pens.
Fold the flower petals into the centre. You do not want to fold them tightly, just a loose fold or they will not open as well. Don’t press the creases too tight.
Fill a bowl or other large container with a few inches of water. Place the folded flower into the water and the paper will absorb the water causing it to open the petals.
It is pretty amazing to watch.
