Blessing #7

Dandelions are becoming plentiful this time of year and most people would think of them as anything but a blessing. But when I was a kid, my mom showed me this fun thing you can do with them. So when I see them, it makes me smile.

Pick some dandelions -- the thicker and longer, the better.

No, scissors needed! Just use your fingers to split each end into 4-6 strips.
And drop into a bowl of cold water.

You'll end up with crazy, curly, dandelion art pieces!
Dandy fun!

My grandkids will love this - and hopefully they will want to pick ALL the dandelions in my yard!
