Phun – Dandelion Curlicues

dandelion puff

I love dandelions and enjoy behaving like a child again when I blow the fuzzy seeds into the wind while “wishing.” Dandelions can also amuse and entertain children by magically morphing into curlicues. Strip the top off of a dandelion stem, split the stem into several pieces, drop into a basin of shallow water, and you will witness an odd occurrence; the dandelions will twist and curl into the most interesting shapes.

Try this with a child, or shhhhhh….I won’t tell if you try it on your own when no one is looking. 😀

    1. Marilyn, my older grandsons play Little League, but they still are young enough to ask me to build “fairy houses” in the back yard with them. I have to remember to cherish every moment with them. 🙂
