We have been making paper as part of our materials topic. We collected different coloured egg boxes. We had green, purple and orange and grey. We chose green and purple.
First we took off any stickers and tore the egg boxes into little pieces. We put water in a container and made the pieces soggy. Then we put the mixture in the blender and made pulp. We poured the pulp over the screen and removed the deckle when it had drained a bit. Then we sprinkled glitter on the surface and covered it with a cloth. After we had turned it over we blotted it with a towel and removed the frame. Then we covered it with another cloth and we rolled it with a rolling pin to squeeze out some water and make it flat.
