We are obsessed with succulents.  We’re native Arizona girls so we’ve always been fond of cactus without loving a full on dessert landscape.  We love mini anything too so we thought it would be fun to make some a cute mini diy foam cactus garden.  Really affordable and lots of room for creativity!

For this month’s Make it Fun team challenge, we had to use foam eggs for a kids craft.  What better way to keep little hands busy than with lightweight foam and paint?  They only thing they needed help with was cutting  pipe cleaners but you could also use noodles for the cactus needles, or toothpicks too.

It was Mother’s Day weekend when we made these [I had my 4 make the smallest ones (like the purple one my youngest is shown making, I’ll put them around the house as decor/keepsakes)] and I always have random cousins in and out.  I sat down 3 of my nephews and had them surprise their moms with them for Mother’s Day…gotta love the tornado afterward (;
