Dandelion Straws

IT'S dandelion weather again! Alexander has been introduced to dandelion clocks and can no longer pass by one without stopping to say hello and send fairies flying off into the wind. Emma noticed the milky white sap inside the stems, so we drew a while on the pavement with that, then had peashooter races, blowing different kinds of rice and beans across the patio using dandelion stems as straws and discovering which went furthest. We ran out of time for dandelion flower crowns... maybe for May Day.

More on dandelions from two years ago
