Papier-Mache! (DUN DUN DUN)
If you didn't immediately click out of this page then check out these cute piggy banks made from tea boxes.
Ingredients - Just in case you haven't papier-mached since elementary school
- Equal parts flour and water
- Torn paper - We used paper bags
- Box or balloon to papier-mache
- Big bowl
After we mixed our flour and water until we had a paste mixture, I showed Mister, Ladybug, and the Wee One how to put the strips in the mixture, remove the excess, and place on their box. The Wee One was hesitant because she didn't exactly love the feeling of the flour and water, but she came around when she saw her siblings have a blast.
|Was this a bad choice for pictures? Again, don't be afraid of the mess because it wipes up easily. I also stuck them in the shower for easy kid clean up.|
|These took at least 4 days to fully dry and harden, but they were amazed at how hard the boxes were.|
We added a nose, eyes, ears, and a tail for a finished papier-mache piggy bank.
|And in case you were wondering about the girl's fashion we had chose your own clothing adventure. She was very creative.|
