Art- Paint with a Snake 
Just like it sounds.  I think I've seen small bags of snakes at the Dollar Tree.  Last time I was there, they had bigger snakes, that you put in water to make them grow- I don't know how that would work with paint. Put some paint on plates/paper and drag snake through paint and then drag onto plain paper.  This is more of a process art than end product like say the cowboy hat.

Math/Life Skills/Science Cactus Flower buttons and felt 
Don't want to use felt? Use green paper and print out cactus coloring page or draw them :)  The number cards can go as high or low as you need.
use 1-9 if those are the numbers you are working on.  Use higher numbers if that's what you're working on. :)  Shuffle the number cards and use in random order.  You could use dice too.  Use two dice for adding numbers.

Theme- Number Sense
