How to make Dandelion Curls

Today we found the first dandelions of this year in our garden.
I remember when I was a child we made lots of dandelion curls. We used them as little figures and created hairdressing salons for them in the medow or we made beautiful dandelion necklaces using the litte curls as pearls.
You will need dandelions and water.
Split the stem with Your fingers.
Put the stem in the water and voila! dandelion curls.
Ringel, Rangel, Löwenzahn,
buttergelbe Scheibe.
Schaust die liebe Sonne an,
dass sie bei dir bleibe.
Pusteblume, blühe auf,
weh‘ in alle Winde,
wehe über unser Haus,
dass dich keiner findet.
Langer Stiel und nackter Knauf,
glatzekahles Köpfchen.
Morgen blühen neue auf,
lauter blonde Schöpfchen.
