I think I’ll throw in a little dandelion theme this week for the day care kids since they’re so abundant right now. They can taste the syrup & cookies. We’ll walk over to this field & they can pick, pick, pick til their hearts content. We will read our dandelion stories & make this cute dandelion art. (I don’t recall where that came from – maybe Kidssoup?) This seed art is also a good idea as well as the dandelion prints. Some people are just amazing with all their ideas.
Today after lunch we went dandelion picking. What for? Because we’re going to make syrup!**Eww, it was a very bitter syrup. We didn’t like it but it was fun & very memorable!!** I know, it’s sounds crazy but it also sounds fun! The idea is from 5 Orange Potatoes. There’s so much inspiration on that blog for things I want to try! We have a whole ice cream bucket full so we might have to try the dandelion cookies too. I want to do the syrup with Brett only – it’s the kind of thing that makes memories! I took 20+ *cute* pictures of him picking dandelions too so soon I’ll be scrapbooking!
