Your challenge today is to make a water lilly....
Wait there's more
This flower will open when put into water. As is by magic!
See the picture below for all the equipment you need, plus a shallow dish or plate filled with no more than a cm of water.
It works by capilliary action. Just like real flowers the paper absorbs the water and pushes the petals flat, forcing them to open.
If you want to spend time on the decorating, which is important, the centre of the smallest flower is what you will see the most of, so that should have all the detail.
Take pictures or a video and send us your results.
Good luck and enjoy!
