paper mache

This week’s craft is Paper Mache hearts. The kids had such a great time with this project because they were able to get messy and what child doesn’t like getting their hands dirty! In order to do this craft, the materials we used were newspaper, paste (flour and water), and balloon hearts. First, I made the paste and blew up the balloon hearts. The kids then were able to cover the balloons with the newspaper covered in paste. Once the balloons was fully covered, we had to wait until the next day for it to fully dry. Once it was dry and hardened, I carefully deflated the balloon and the kids painted their hearts. On the next craft day, the kids will fully decorate their balloons and will finally be able to take them home.
