Paper Pulp is a texture rich material that can be used in a variety of craft projects. Paper pulp can be molded into whatever shape you need, making it especially wonderful for young children and useful for thematic units. This is a messy project so be prepared!
Choose a color! Rip up some paper scraps into small pieces. We'll be using blue and green.
You can soak the paper until it is soft.....Or if you are impatient......
....then you can whip out your blender! Just pour the warm water and paper into the blender and give it a few pulses.
Your paper will with be nice and pulpy and still a bit of liquid left over.
If you scoop your hand in and squeeze off the excess water, you're left with a mushy paper pulp.
Take your pulp and place it inside the shape you want to make with it. We are making mittens for our "Be Responsible" bible lesson.
Once your pattern is completly full of paper pulp, it's time to let it dry. This can take a while....leave it out in the sun if you can.
Once dry, carefully remove your paper from the template sheet. You now have a 3-D paper in the shape of your choice!
