1.) Draw or paint the stem of the flower.
2.) Top that with a thumbprint for the center of the dandelion. (The kids LOVE mixing all the paints together to make a brown center.)
3.) Use your brush, finger, or Q-tip to create the seeds around the thumbprint.


My absolute favorite part of this project is listening to the cuties make wishes. We go outside to find dandelions and blow our wishes into the universe. (I wrote them down just to show a few examples, but normally, we don’t say them aloud in hopes that they’ll come true. Plus, little kid whispers are the cutest!)
