Recycled paper.


Tivon tore up a pile of his old dot-to-dots and other assorted scraps of paper. We added water and whizzed it with the kitchen hand blender to make a watery pulp.

The mould is a mesh covered frame, Tivon slips the mould into the pulp mixture and lifts it out, much of the water drains away to leave the new wet sheet of paper which is tipped onto a cloth.

We pressed the paper with a board to remove excess water and then hung it out to dry. 

 We do this and other crafts with visiting children too but I don't post photos of our visitors for privacy reasons.
