MAKING PAPER BALLS
Press and squeeze wet paper pulp and seeds together to form a ball, maybe even swinging it around to decrease wetness and get some exercise!
Best for ages 7 years +
1 to 1-1/2 hours depending on group size
MAKING SHEETS OF PAPER
Why it is INTENSIVE:
Preparation, set-up, and break down takes approximately 40 minutes. One instructor helps two participants at a time pull sheets of paper from the tub while small groups rotate through a series of "jobs" relying on one or two adults for group management. Time needed to rotate through the group will vary, and 1-3 adults helping with young folks is suggested.
Some preparation and basic materials are required.
