Flowerpot Faux Pas
A class of schoolkids were given a project to decorate a flowerpot they could take home and show off to their parents. They wanted a plant that was easy to take care of, so it was decided to use cactuses.
The students were given greenware pottery shaped like a clown. They painted them with glaze and had them professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process. It was great fun.
The children planted the cactus seeds in the finished flowerpots and they grew nicely. Unfortunately, they were not allowed to take them home. See the next page to understand why.
