Primitive paper making
With shredded newspaper, leaves, flower petals,a bucket of hot water and a little bit of play time my grandson and I made some cardboard. He wanted to make paper for a class. We followed the directions: shredding, mixing, stirring until creamy, spreading on a screen and rolling out excess water with a rolling pin. Although it is really funky and textured we are loving it!
~It is more like cardboard than paper.
~We just don't care!
~Going to use some of it in a few little projects.
~That plus he'll get extra credit!
What have you been doing?
