Recycle Newspaper

Materials Needed:: newspaper (lots), water, several aluminum, containers, rolling pin, strainer, large spoon or scoop

1. Shred newspaper and put into 1 or 2 containers about 4"
deep depending on how many children will be participating
in this activity.

2. Add water to cover the paper
have children mix with hands until consistency of oatmeal.
This takes quite a long time so the children can take
turns.

3. Take one aluminum container and turn it upside down.
4. Strain about 2 scoops of newspaper "goop" and place on
bottom of aluminum pan.

5. Roll it out to cover the whole pan.

6. Blot with newspaper to get as much water out as
possible.

7. Keeping a piece of newspaper on top, turn container
over and carefully peal container off the now thin layer
of newspaper goop.

8. Lay it out to dry over 1-2 days. It will be paper
when it is dried and you can carefully peel it off the
newpaper. Contributed by : Noel
