How to Make Paper Mache

We use a basic paper mache recipe. It’s very simple to remember, and you can whip it up very quickly for all of your projects. Paper Mache is basically a runny version of glue using flour. It dries a bit stiff but it easily adheres thin paper to different surfaces. It’s very fun to work with, as children love any opportunity to get sloppy!
