Kids Corner: How to make a daisy chain

Children across the world have been making daisy chains since the 1800’s. It is a fun outdoor activity that can keep your little ones occupied for a quite a while! Joining daisies in a ring creates a chain that can be used as a bracelet, necklace, or even a crown.

Here’s our step by step guide to make your daisy chain

1.Start by collecting some daisies and store them in a small tub.

If there aren’t any growing in your garden, visit a local park and you are bound to be able to find some.

2.Make a slit in the first flower’s stem with a fingernail.

If your nails aren’t long enough, ask a parent to help you make a slit with some scissors

3.Thread the second daisy’s stem through the hole in the first stem.

4.Keep going until you have a really long daisy chain!

To finish the chain, make a second slit in the first daisy’s stem and thread the last flower’s stem through it.
