Why you should always look to the potential outcome!

An elementary school class started a project to make planters to take home to their parents. They wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care of, so they decided to use cactus plants. 

The students were given green-ware pottery planters in the shape of clowns which they painted with glaze.  The clown planters were professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process. It was great fun! They planted cactus seeds in the finished planters and they grew nicely, but unfortunately, the children were not allowed to take them home. 

The cactus plants were removed and small ivy replaced them and the children were then allowed to take them home. 

The teacher said cactus seemed like a good idea at the time!

  5. Lordy Lordy just look at the pricks on dem clowns.

  6. You're more than welcome Etta!

    Good question Mary, here the kids are expecting to take home a cactus plant and they see ivy in it's place. How would one explain that?

    Silv, they sure are hard up :D
