Hi Dharma School Families,

Also, if you would like to do any of the following and take a picture of your child(ren) watching the service, or getting ready to watch the service with one of the following and send your pictures to us at deikeda@comcast.net, we would love to post them in the next Busshin:
1.  Make paper craft flowers (see links for simple craft ideas) and set them in a vase/cup.
2.  Pick some flowers from your garden and put them in a vase/cup.
3.  Watch the service with your favorite stuffed animals or even your real pets!

Take care and stay safe!

Gassho,
Delia and Melyssa
