You can find dandelions almost anywhere. Use them to make a chain, a necklace, or even a crown!
What You Do
- Pick a Dandelion
Pick a dandelion with a long, thick stem.
- Make a Slit
Use your fingernail to make a short slit halfway down the dandelion’s stem.
- Make a Chain
Poke the stem of another dandelion into the slit. Pull it through until it stops at the flower head.
Make a slit in the stem of the second dandelion. Poke a third one through.
Continue adding to your chain until it’s as long as you want it.
- Complete Your Chain
Connect the ends of the chain by tying the last stem in a knot around the first one.
Crown yourself the king or queen of spring! If you have lots of dandelions, make crowns or necklaces for your mom, dad, best friend, brother, sister–or even your dog or cat!
