The grade 5’s are making hand puppets this term. It’s a collaborated project between the drama, technology and art classes – very exciting.
Today we are creating the first layer of paper mache’ around a small balloon.
A few challenges:
Getting all the balloons tied
Making lump-free ‘elephant snot’ (starch)
Finishing the first layer in one hour
Creating a lump-free layer
Finding a place to dry 4 classes worth of projects
However the kids are loving it! So all the mess is worth it.
