The Whole Process Is a Great Lesson in Working in Stages and Coming Back to Work in Progress

Last week the children were introduced to papier machier.  In this photo you can see one child mixing up the paste made from flour and water.

Papier Machier is another new language for the children.  This week they’ll continue exploring with papier machier.

Papier Machier takes discipline and patience.  Preparing the strips of paper takes time and can be tedious.  Mixing the paste is fun.  Getting fingers dirty and sticky is fun.  Waiting for papier machier to dry can be challenging.  The whole process is a great lesson in working in stages and coming back to work in progress.
