How to Make Dandelion Ladies

1) Pick a dandelion, making sure it has at least a 3-4” stem.

2) With your fingernails, carefully peel the stem back into halves lengthwise, leaving about a 1” section of stem by the blossom intact.

3) Peel the halves into halves and halves again, careful not to break them, until you have several “streamers.”

4) Place the split stem into cold or tap water. Watch the streamers curl before your eyes!

5) Stand the finished dandelion doll on its blossom, which is the skirt. Now you have a curly topped, yellow skirted little lady. Make a dozen of them and watch how each of them curls differently.
