We did a nature walk today to look for some prickly pear. We learned about them before we went then took a bunch of pictures. Sadly, they aren’t super pretty this time of year. We did learn about an insect called the Cochineal which is historically used as dye. Ethan decided to scrape some of it off and mash it to dye some water 🤦🏼♀️. Haha. It was fun. Tomorrow they will be drawing and painting prickly pear cacti into their nature journal.
