Botany Science Fair Project

Frozen Flower Sensory Play

Frozen Flower Sensory Play | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Explore the physical properties of water as it freezes to ice and melts back to liquid, while also admiring the beauty of flowers. By freezing fresh flowers in water and playing with the frozen flowers until they melt, children can learn about the different parts of a flower and how water can go from solid to liquid.


The hypothesis is that freezing flowers in water will create a unique sensory experience that will allow children to explore the properties of water and the different parts of a flower.

Method & Materials

You will freeze fresh flowers in water using a muffin pan. Children can then play with the frozen flowers, cups and spoons on a tray and observe as the flower emerges from the melting ice.
You will need a 12-cup muffin pan, fresh flowers, droppers, cups, spoons, tray and water.


This science experiment is a fun and engaging way for children to learn about the physical properties of water and the parts of a flower. As the ice melts, they can observe the flower emerging from the ice and use their senses to explore its different parts.

Why do this project?

This science project is unique because it combines the sensory exploration of water with flowers. Children get to explore science in a playful and creative way.

Also Consider

1) Use different types of flowers and leaves. 2) Add food coloring to the water to encase the flowers in colorful ice cubes.
