15 Delightful Daffodil Crafts for Kids
These daffodil crafts are exactly what you need to brighten your day! With Daffodil Day coming up, these are perfect to play around with!
When 2020 dawned, few of us thought that we would be saying the word ‘Corona’ so much, but although we associate this word with a virus, we’d prefer to think about it’s association with something more beautiful – daffodils!
The central cone of a daffodil is called the Corona – hence the wordplay! It is one of the most identifiable parts of the flower, and part of what gives the bloom its iconic look.
And iconic it is – the daffodil is the national flower of Wales. It belongs to the family of the Narcissus and is said to represent hope and renewal. After the pandemic, that’s what we all have needed, and we hope these daffodil crafts will inspire you for the same! If you needed any more reason to make these daffodil crafts, we’ve got one – it’s Daffodil Day on 26th August, so time to get crafting!
