Adventures in paper making!
I’ve been wanting to this for a while with the kids — but my ‘kit’ was burried away… We’ve been moving things around the basement because of construction and on wednesday, a rainy day, i thought I’d go check if I could see it — and by chance/miracle…. it was on top of the boxes!
I love love love handmade paper — and would love to make a stash to use… I’d really like to make cotton rag paper, i haven’t tried it yet and have to figure out how it’s done…
Here’s a crazy overload of photographs of 2 toddlers making paper for the first time in a tutorial sort of way! I’m very certain it wont be the last time!
Playing with pulp. This is MY favorite part. we played for a while — and they slowly got used to the pulp feeling on their hands — they’d go from pulp to rince, with a little more time in the pulp each time!
The end. (until of course a new adventure! must figure out something quick – it’s another rainy day!)
