  • Make wreaths?? They can hang them on their doorknobs or wear them on their heads.

    That was my first thought.

  • We are making wristlets at our meetup tomorrow. I am sure there are pretty yellow dandelions included.

  • I used to attempt to make little baskets out of them... (I was 10)
    the wreaths and wristlets are a great idea as well...

  • Dandelions are wonderful. From the tip to the roots and the beauty of the blooming flower.

  • We took in a snail recently and his jar is decorated with dandelions for healing. They're on the alter around the edges, didn't do anything special beyond that with them.

  • Dandelions are also a great all natural dye. Paint some positive things on the sidewalks with them, they'll wash away in the next rainstorm or when the sprinklers hit them. Use them to draw symbols on your faces & hands, talk about what these mean and how they connect you to each other and the earth. You can get a recipe for different dishes using dandelions on line, yes they are edible too!!!! Love the wreath & wrist let idea!

  • Oh they sure are Nyx7. My Great Grandmother used to pluck a flower out and chew on it while she did her gardening. She'd pull up the roots and dry them and boil the greens too.

  • They are bitter after they start the seeding stage. But if you get them while they are still a yellow flower they are sweet.
