Our Family Blog: A Typical Look Inside A Not So Typical Family
That was my favorite project in 5th grade! I made so many globes that year that my mom had to limit them. I can't wait to see them when done.
P.S. I just remembered that I have green and blue temper paint in the closet...I feel a project coming on LOL!
I never had a chance to do something like this. Now I have a project to do with our kids. :) They look fun to make, and can't wait to see when they are done.
We are doing this for the third theme of the year... maybe it's the fourth. Anyway, soon enough! We are making our own glue for the theme before. :)
Hevel, we tried it making our own starchy glue, and it didn't work. I tried to make it up by putting paper mache' from the store and it was AWFUL.... so we threw the mess out and started again.I could not BELIEVE how expensive glue was at the art store! I bought this gallon of glue at Lowes for 12.99. The art store wanted 7.99 for a smaller 16 oz bottle of glue, i couldn't believe it!We mixed the glue with some water to make it thinner and and we could dip the news paper in the solution to put on the balloon. So far, they are dry and holding together! :)
Alli wants to make a big pinata.... :)
Ah, I hope our glue project works as well as last year! We also like to mix up a lot of wallpaper glue and store it in jars... lasts forever, costs pennies.
I used wallpaper paste, it worked really well.A piñata sounds fun too.
