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!
