– Mary May Larmoyeux – Have you ever been to a daffodil festival? Well, the daffodils are blooming a little early in Arkansas, and it’s time for the 38th annual Wye United Methodist Church Daffodil Festival. Located on Wye Mountain (near Little Rock, Arkansas), the 2017 Festival activities will be held on the weekends of March 4-5 and 11-12. (However, the daffodil field is always open.)
If you live close enough to drive to the fun at Wye Mountain, you can enjoy more than 30 varieties of daffodils growing in a seven-acre field. Their beauty can provide a great background for family pictures! And on festival weekends you can also buy some unique crafts and enjoy delicious barbecue. (You can read more on the Facebook page of “Daffodils on Wye Mountain.”)
Speaking of golden fields, whether or not you can attend the Wye Mountain daffodil festival, you may want to make a daffodil craft or two with the kids in your life. You could purchase an inexpensive sun visor (at the dollar store) and some artificial daffodils. Just clip the daffodil blooms off of the stem and hot glue them to the visor. You may also want mail some decorated sun visors to out-of-town loved ones.
Here are some other fun daffodil crafts that I discovered when searching the Internet (if you know of others, please share in the comment section below):
