Nature Bracelet and Cotton Ball Peas

 Take a piece of tape, wrap it around a wrist, and cover it in joy.



Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Leave the flowers to dry and savour the taste of spring a little longer.

Take a piece of tape, place it on a holey gum boot, to let a little girl enjoy them through the last few weeks of winter.

 Take some peas (Dwarf and Sugar for us)

 Cut a milk carton in 1/2 and fill it with cotton wool, pull the balls apart a bit so they stretch a little further.
 Bury seeds amongst the cotton wool.
 Water. You just want the seeds to be damp. Keep them in a warm place.
1 week later the seeds have emerged and are ready to be planted in the garden for a late burst of Spring peas.
