Dandelions can be used to make a pretty batch of homemade play dough. The kids can help gather the materials, too. Dandelion Play Dough is easy to work with and most importantly, fun and seasonal.
I made a batch of simple white play dough. Then, I added a touch of turmeric, to make it yellow. I asked the kids to separate the dandelions hey had found into petals. Next I added the dandelion petals to the ready to knead play dough and mixed them in. I kept adding more petals as I continued kneading, until the play dough achieved the desired color and texture.
