Gather supplies and set up in an area that will be easy to clean
Start by mixing 1 tablespoon of yeast with 1/4 cup warm water in cup. Let it sit for about 30 seconds while you prep the beaker.
Into the beaker flask add 150 mL of Hydrogen Peroxide, a tablespoon of dish soap, and about 5 - 10 drops of red food colouring. If using glitter, add that too. Mix it all together.
Fold the petals in half, one at a time, and slip them into the beaker. Do this with about 5 petals.
Now pour the yeast mixture into the hydrogen peroxide mixture.
Watch the reaction and the petals bloom!
