When my children were younger, they loved learning all about dandelions! Dandelions are sometimes considered to be weeds, but they have so many uses! (I’ll mention some of them below.)
And besides, we all know the wonder of blowing a dandelion in its seed stage and making a wish. When my were younger, they loved to find and blow dandelions. Now my niece loves it.
So why not explore how dandelions turn from yellow flowers to make-a-wish seed head stage? You’ll find out more about how dandelions grow, how you can use them, and more!
