The girls have been serious dandelion hunters lately. Whenever we are near a patch of grass, they are searching for white dandelions to blow and wish upon. Last time we were at the library, I found the book Dandelion Adventures by L. Patricia Kite over in the kids’ science book area. It tells about the different adventures of seven dandelion seeds as they blow around and land in various places. The girls have really been enjoying it. It also has all kinds of information and fun facts about dandelions at the end. (It doesn’t seem to be available at Amazon right now, so definitely check your library!)
- Collect dandelions and make necklaces or crowns.
- Make our own paper parachutes to explore how dandelion seeds move through the air.
- Dig up a dandelion and check out it’s flower, stem, leaves, and roots.
- Read some more books about dandelions!
If you have any fun dandelion activities, crafts or books to share, I’d love to hear about them!
