It's a HAND CACTUS!!

I’ve been working with our PreK for about a month now. We’ve created some really fun and simple things. This is just about the easiest thing EVER! It takes about 5 to 10 min. (depending on focus) with my group of 4 year-olds.

Step 1: Talk about Cacti, show picture, gesture what they look like.

Step 2: Demo tracing your arm. Let them trace with a black crayon.

Step 3: Color it with various shades of green.

Step 4: Add the spines with black crayon.

And there you have it. Hand Cactus! It hits on fine motor skills, imagination, tracing, Pretty much Nat. Standards 1, 2, and 3 are covered. They had fun and the resulting products were adorable!
