How to Make a Dandelion Crown
1. Pick flowers. (I clipped them with my scissors.)
2. Optional: Wash and dry stems.
Talk to your kids about the different parts of the flower. My son is rather young, so I just pointed out the stem, petals, and sticky sap.
3. Trim stems till they're about 3" long.
4. Use your nail and create a small hole in the middle of a dandelion stem.
5. Slip a second dandelion stem inside of your previously created hole.
6. Now create a small hole in your second dandelion stem. Slip a third dandelion into this hole. Keep creating holes and sticking dandelions inside of them until you have a chain of flowers long enough to wrap around your head.
7. Once you're satisfied with the length, tie both ends of your flower crown together.
8. Trim any stems that jut out too much. (But be careful not to trim them too short, because you don't want your holes to break.)
And that's it! Now you've got yourself a DIY dandelion crown.
Not interested in making a dandelion crown? Well, you could always make the chain a bit longer and create yourself a dandelion necklace.
