Room 9: Art! blog and decided to give it a try. If you haven't seen this blog, definitely check it out - I have been inspired by it several times this year.
We began by looking at different varieties of cacti and succulent plants like aloe and jade, and we discussed the climate necessary for these plants to thrive. We looked at colorfully painted Mexican pottery, and put our handbuilding skills to use as we pinched pots and modelled clay. We mixed a variety of different greens for a natural look to our container gardens, and even added broken spaghetti noodles for the cactus prickles. We were a bit rushed for time with these, as school is out next week, but I think they are really fun and cute and I hope they will adorn many mother's shelves this Mother's Day.
