When I was young we used to make daisy chains all the time. The stems are thick enough to push a fingernail through to make a slot for the stem of the next daisy. Daisies and dandelions grew wild near own home.
Oh yes, lots and lots of daisy chains! As a child, as a teenager, as a young adult.... and now as a fairly old adult! I prefer them as a crown :)
And I have tried to teach my son but he's not so interested. Maybe when he's a bit older....
When I was a youngster I used to make dandelion chains, my little brother and I loved doing this when we were about six and seven. Lots of healthy outside play - now I have the skin lumps and bumps to show for it. Aussie sun is so hot!
Yes, when I was a child I lived near a bluebell wood which had masses of bluebells, poppies, daisies, dandelions, crocuses, and all sorts of wildflowers. We used to have a great time making daisy chains for crowns, necklaces and bracelets, and usually went home with huge bunches of wildflowers for mum.
I read the other day that apparently scientists have discovered when they come across a bluebell wood, they are considered ancient forests. Didn't come into the equation when we were picking the flowers!
