Spring has finally sprung! We've been spending a lot of time in our backyard lately, and it's been great to re-introduce the outdoors to our kids.
However our backyard looks like this:
Anyway, we spent a good hour doing some fun little flower things in the backyard. You probably did them as a kid, but it's a great reminder to, well, stop and smell the flowers!
Here are some cute dandelion bangles. First you take as long a Dandelion as you can find:
Then we made a flower wand by tying a big bunch of Dandelions close to the head using another Dandelion:
And finally we made some Violet and Dandelion necklaces.
All you do is make a slit through the stem and thread the next one through it (ad infinitum) To complete the necklace, make a larger slit and thread the first flower head though it.
You can see that with teh Dandelions I just tied a knot in the end of each one.
