Platelets are some of the most useful parts of your blood! They hang around in your blood until they are needed and then jump into action. Platelets are small, have a funny shape and are very sticky. When you have a cut, they stick together to make a clot (which turns into a scab when it dries) and stops all your blood from leaking out!
