Q-Tip Dandelion

Q-Tip Dandelion

The other day at the park, we were blowing dandelion fluff and it gave me the idea to recreate a dandelion picture, fluff and all, at home.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. sticky foam sheet
  2. q-tips
  3. pipe cleaner
  1. For this craft, we used a foam sheet that has a sticky back you can peel off to reveal. If you can't find a sticky foam sheet you can use a piece of construction paper and white glue. :) My daughter placed the stem down of her dandelion first and twisted and pressed it into shape.

  2. Next, she laid the Q-tips around for a dandelion effect. She said she remembered blowing the fluff around outside!

  3. She even picked off some of the cotton from the Q-tip and placed it on the sticky foam sheet, adding to the blown fluff effect. :)

  4. Have fun "blowing" your own dandelion fluff and remember to make a wish!
