What comes to mind immediately when you think of spring? Quickly – don’t think too much! What was it? I bet it was flowers!
Yes, spring is when all the plants and trees bloom after the long, cold winter, and the world becomes colorful. Depending on which part of the world you live in, spring will look different, and the kinds of flowers you get to see will be different. Isn’t that amazing?
We’re in a floral mood over here at Artsy Craftsy Mom too, which is why today’s we’re going to make a Cupcake Liner Dandelion Craft For Kids! This Dandelion flower craft for kids is perfect for toddlers, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, first grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd graders too. It goes well with a few lessons about dandelions, and you can use the information below as a starting point.
Are dandelions white or yellow?
Both white and yellow dandelions are commonly found across the world. The yellow varieties are found in the United States, Russia and Kazakastan while the white ones are found in Asian countries like Japan, Korea and India. There are also pink and purple dandelions.
Why are dandelions special?
Dandelions have a unique structure, with a long step and the hairy head, giving rise to names like ‘lion’s tooth’, ‘monk’s head’, ‘puffball’ or ‘blowball’. Dandelions are considered to represent the celestial bodies; the yellow represents the sun, the seeds resemble stars while puff ball represents the moon.
Why do people wish on dandelions?
Many people believe that dandelion seeds will carry your thoughts and dreams to loved ones when you blow them into the air. As dandelions turn to seed, children everywhere rush to pick them, so that they can close their eyes, make a wish, and blow the seeds into the air.
So are you ready to make your wish? Well then, it’s time to make your own cupcake liner dandelion craft!
