Here’s another child-friendly, screen-free activity to do – making recycled paper. I can get a little messy so I would recommend an art smock and some gloves.
THH Difficulty Level:
What you’ll need:
– 2 x dozen-sized egg cartons
–paper making mould (I made one using an old photo frame and PVC mesh and used an IKEA bag clip to press the paper onto the cloth)
– cut cloth
- Gather all your items.
- Take the egg cartons and tear them into pieces. Transfer to the blender, add a little water and blend until the mixture is pulpy.
- Pour the mix into a bowl (you can add leaves or flowers into the mixture if desired) and push the mould into the mix.
- Gently remove the mould out of the mixture and turn it onto a dry piece of cloth. Using the IKEA bag clip, push it down to ensure the pulp has fully transferred. Leave it to air dry.
- Repeat as desired.
