Step 2: Paint green stalks

You can paint on the green stalks using a paint brush.

However, toddlers might find it easier to print the stalks using a drinking straw. Dip the straw into the green paint and press it down onto the black card.

You could even keep going and make more dandelion sponge prints in different colours!
