Try these fun experiments to discover how different kinds of paper react to water.
You will need:
• Flower Template
• Bowl of water
1. Cut out your templates (PDF below)
2. Fold in each petal on your flowers, to the centre of the flowers
3. Gently place each flower in your bowl of water. What happens? Watch as the petals slowly open as the paper absorbs the water.
Now try the experiment again, but this time create flowers with more petals and different shaped petals.
Try using thinner paper like newspaper. Do you get a different result?
