MAKING PAPER

Materials required: Old paper (newspaper, term papers, and try to get some colors in there!), a blender, a screen, a pan, some paper towels, a bucket.
Preparation time is about 10 minutes.
This activity is appropriate for all ages.
At least two afternoons (2 hours) are needed for this activity.


    This activity is best done in stages. The first afternoon, rip up small strips of the old paper with the kids and set it to saok in the bucket.
    When you return the next week, mush up the paper, blend it, and strain it on the screen. Let it dry, possibly until the third week's visit.
    *NOTE* ~ WOODS has all of the materials necessary to make paper, including the blender and screen - it's all in the locker, folks!
