Classroom Activities—Giant Dandelions

Use these dandelions to draw attention to student work on a motivational display. Want to add some puffballs? Use white instead of yellow yarn!

Materials:

Step 1
Wrap the long section of yarn around the square.

Step 2
Use two pieces of yarn to tie the loops tightly at the top and bottom.

Step 3
Carefully slide the yarn off the cardboard. Pinch the two tied sections together; then tightly tie them in place with the remaining piece of yarn.

Step 4
Cut the loops and trim the cut ends to make a fluffy ball.

Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
