The Year 4 and 5 students found a problem in our classroom. We have too much scrap paper in our drawer! Our solution was to make our own paper. We read the instructions together and followed them. We really enjoyed reusing the paper to make our own. Re using things is a great for our environment!
Rip up the paper into small pieces.
Soak the paper in water for 20 minutes and then mix it up so it becomes a pulp.
Pour the pulp into fresh water and then scoop it up in the 'paper sandwich' kit.
Drain the water and put it on the beach.
Sponge off the excess water and leave to dry for 2 days.
Now it is ready to write on, draw on or create it into something else.
