Paper Making

Our first craft for February!   

I showed the kids how we can make paper by recycling other paper products. 

  • the pale lavender = plain white paper
  • grey = newspaper adds
  • brown = brown grocery bags

We used THIS SITE for basic instructions on making our paper.

We sprinkled wildflower seeds on the pulp before smashing the water out of it.  some of the kids got a little carried away!  some of us also used flower petals and leafs from the plants in the school yard.

Everyone had a ton of fun even though it was chilly and the clouds looked like it would rain on us! (we made the paper outside since it’s such a messy project.) 

Next week we’ll be making a special craft with the paper we made.

I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

  1. I LOVE to make handmade paper!! I was just telling Earl the other day that I haven’t made any in a long time. It’s so much fun to experiment with different fibers and stuff. Great job!!!

    I wanted to say thank you again for posting all you did while you learned about the celebration of Christmas in other countries. I just finished printing out your posts so I could put them in my ideas binder for the coming school year. Will you be learning about any other countries in December? If so, do you know which ones they will be?
