Mud pies with a side of succulent

So, I capitulated to the really nice ladies at the church I attend to do some volunteer work… namely to teach the kiddos at summer camp how to make hypertufa pots.  This seemed fairly straightforward at first – and I had such high hopes of explaining to the older ones how concrete worked and why it was important to society as we know it (including how the molecules reacted to water and how adding inert dessicants helped to keep it lightweight)…. buuuuut remarkably, they lost interest in all of that!  Can you believe it?!  Here’s some of the cute little pots they did however manage to make, despite my lack of imparting any real scientific info on the inner workings of the remarkable concrete molecules.
