These spring dandelions sure do make dandy little lions.

The spring has sprung and so have all of the dandelions. If your yard is anything like mine, it is covered in them.  My daughter loves to pick them. She weeds our yard all the time and doesn’t even realize it. She picked me a bunch the other day and we started talking about how dandelion sounds like dandy lion. My daughter cleverly pointed out to me that the dandelion looked like a lion’s mane. That is what inspired this simple “dandy lions” nature craft.

There is not much to it. Pick some dandelions. You can choose to pop the heads off, which is always fun or leave them on the stem.

Cut a circle out of yellow construction paper that is a bit smaller than the dandelion. Draw a simple lion’s face on the circle using a marker.

Squeeze white school glue on the back of the lion’s face and press into the flower and voila and instant dandy lion. It is as easy as that.

How cute are these? They just make me smile.
