We have been busy making paper from our recycling bin in the classroom. We ripped up the pieces into little bits and left them to soak for 3 days. Then we put them it in a blender to make it into pulp. We added green or red food colouring to the mixture and than put it put it on the mesh frame. We patted it out onto wax paper and made it a bit thinner. It took about 3 days to dry out properly.
we have started making Christmas Cards with our recycled paper.
