At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
Many nature lovers look forward to the arrival of apple blossoms every year, especially in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley.
We all know that these lovely blossoms produce delicious apples, but did you realize that the apple blossoms themselves are edible? They have a sweet flavor and are packed in antioxidants.
In 1897, apple blossoms were designated as the Michigan state flower. Given the state's lengthy history with the fruit, the choice is appropriate. While Michigan's orchards produce a wide range of apple types, lawmakers chose the blossoms of the Pyrus coronaria to be the state flower.
Did you know that China is a major apple producer? China produced a whopping 48 million ton (44 million metric ton) of apples and apple blossoms in 2020-2021.
Apples need chilly winters; therefore, cool to cold climates are ideal for cultivating high-quality apples. Many apple types can withstand freezing temperatures and snow.
Apple blossoms thrive in full sun but may tolerate partial shade.
Let's learn some amazing facts on how long apple blossoms last!
After hibernating throughout the cold winter months, apple blossom buds emerge in the spring. This dormant time is required for the state flower to grow appropriately for the tree to produce a large fruit crop.
