The White Boxer Chronicles

©1998 by Anton Uhl

A Maypole is usually a very tall pole with many colored ribbons hanging from the top. Everyone dancing around the Maypole takes a ribbon and forms a circle around the pole. There need to be an even number of dancers. The idea here is to weave the colored ribbons around the tall pole so, every other person goes in the opposite direction around the pole... half the people go clockwise while th other half go counter clockwise.

As the dancers pass each other in the circle, they alternate going over one person and then under the ribbon of the next, then over the next person, then under the next person's ribbon until the ribbons are all nicely woven around the beautiful Maypole.


Make someone special happy and make them a real live daisy chain!

Pick some daisies or the small daisy-like flowers that you find in lawns sometimes with about 2 inches of stem.
Make a slot in the stem near the top using your thumbnail.
Insert the next daisy i the slot and make a slot in that daisy's stem.
Continue to insert daisy into daisy until you have enough of a chain to make a floral crown.
