Paper Making 

Before paper making was a commercial process paper was made of many things like leather, bark, or papyrus. As part of our series on the history of paper we made paper from recycled paper materials.

We included non paper remnants to make it pretty.

  

We soaked egg cartons and other paper products that were finished.  

  

Once the paper pulp was soft we mixed it and placed it on a screen.

  

We pressed the water out as much as we could to aid the drying.

 

  

We enjoyed this paper making craft very much and hope to have more crafts on this theme in the future. 

Please send us your ideas for projects to help children learn about history and culture.
