Project Gone Wrong..
An elementary school
class started a class 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 instead.
The teacher said
cactus seemed like a good idea at the time!
