How to save the trees…make paper with used paper!

How can we be good global citizens? Well…we can make our own paper. We now have our own paper making factory. How did we do it? We watched a video on ‘How to make paper at home’. We then wrote the recipe down and followed the steps. And voila! Paper. (Ask your child if they remember what the word ‘voila’ means.) The paper is a bit like lightweight cardboard, but still…Have a look.

Watching the video and writing the recipe

Getting the paper ready

Adding water to the paper
Using a blender to make the ‘mush’

Using a ‘frame’ to collect the ‘mush’

Transferring the ‘mush’ to a board and felt

Getting the water out

And…voila…paper (sort of)
