Something every child should do during spring is to pick dandelions and make a flower crown.
It’s simple and free kids activity! Here is how to make a flower crown:
Outdoor Kids Activities
Have your child pick dandelions with as much stem on them as they can get. You will want it to be 3-4”, but you can always just pull of any extra.
Hold the stem between both your thumbs. Using your thumb nails press into the middle of the stem and pull apart to create an eyelet. Insert a new dandelion into the small eyelet. Repeat with the stem of dandelion #2.
Continue going until you have a long strong of dandelions that will go around your child’s head. The closer the dandelions are to each other the more dandelions you will need and the fuller it will look. You can put the eyelet whole down on the stem a couple inches to make crowns faster.
