Papier Mache


Recommended Posts

We are going to be have messy play in playschool for the next two weeks.

I was thinking about letting the children tear up egg trays and adding water, then getting them to mould it into pastry cutters, do I need to add some wall paper paste (non fungal) to make it stick together, when they have dried out the children could paint them before taking them home.

Egg boxes will work without adding paste or glue but the glue would make it stronger or you could try painting the model with pva after its been decorated. I did a workshop with my own children (when they were much smaller) and the lady used a kitchen blender to break down the paper with added water and I still have the bowl my daughter made :)
