Not so prickly cactus….

Today we continued to talk about the letter Cc and the cactus!  We looked at many different cactus pictures and how different they can be.  Some have lots of needles, some have flowers and some even look like cucumbers!  We learned why the cactus have needles (so they won’t get eaten…and they actually help the cactus to retain water) and then made some during Arts and Crafts.


First we started with a card stock cactus template and green paint

Then, we glued tooth picks onto the cactus for the needles
