Today I am thankful for my daughter who taught me how to make wishes on leaves. If you'd like to try just do this...
- pick up a leaf. crumpled works as well as flat.
- close your eyes. really squeeze them. i told you close your eyes.
- make your wish while doing all the following...
- jump up.
- throw your leaf up in the air.
- say "blow."
*Important note: this wish-casting technique also works with sticks, but is then referred to as "wish-sticking," as opposed to leaf-wishing.
