    Just please be careful with the mushrooms you're spore-printing, especially the white-spored ones - Amanitas have the prettiest white spores and some of them are absolutely deadly. Don't let the kids or the dog or the bird play with them or munch on them and keep them away from anything you're going to eat. The baddies aren't limited to white-spored ones, either. The mushrooms from the supermarket are fine, though, and most have nice chocolate-brown spore prints.

    I don't want to be a wet blanket, but you should allways know what you're doing before you pick wild mushrooms.

    I think there is a bit of hysteria about handling fungi. None have contact poisons and while spore inhalation is an issue for molds and handling soil, spore printing is not an extreme sport.

    In my country school children are taught not to touch mushrooms unless they are wearing latex gloves. It's not the best way to introduce two lifeforms. Would you wear a mask when going into public places? Seriously - causal contact with people in crowded places is not without its risks either.
