Paper Mache Project

Holly enjoyed her first ever paper mache project. In her Expedition Earth curriculum she had to create a paper mache earth after reviewing the continents, oceans, parts of the globe such as equator, prime meridian, etc.

Doing paper mache is a multi-day project that is messy, both in building and then painting. I blew the balloon up and then explained what paper mache is and how you build it. She didn't mind the mess... me, well - it was messy! Not to bad but it did require a lot of plastic and paper coverage, dripping and wiping up. Despite the mess it was well worth it!

Her earth project turned out fantastic!!! She is very proud of her work - as she should be!
