Papier Mache

These are some of the results of the 3 year olds papier
mache project. They created the shape with paper,
flour and water. This is a project that can bring out a lot
of converstion in a child. Some love to dip their hands
in the gooey liquid. Others look frightened. I always push a
little bit to get them to touch something new. They were fascinated at
the solid form that came of all of their hard work after
they had dried for a week. They painted
with acrylic using bold colors. The fianl touch was a bit of
metalic dots or not. We used q-tips on the final layer. I encouraged
dot making, but some put a beautiful sheen over their primary layer.
