My current afterschool paper mache project is turning out to be one of my most reliable, ye olde balloon and mache combination. I posted this project a while back, but without illustrations. Tomorrow is paint day so I'll be showing off the results. SESSION ONE: I started each student off with a 12" balloon and a cut-off grocery box to hold the balloon in place.

The students used 10" strips of newspaper for the first layer. The mache recipe can be found HERE. SESSION TWO: If your balloon has popped, cut a small opening and blow up another inside to replace it. SESSION THREE: Cut a 7" circle of corrugated cardboard for the base of each bowl and use about 8 long strips of masking tape to secure it as shown. Instructables - Make, How To, and DIY.

And something about the project really appealed to me. I think it’s the recycling of fabric scraps- which I happen to have in droves, perhaps a project the teens might enjoy? And I love any excuse to play with paper mache. source source source source source This is as far as we’ve gotten- paper mache bowl shapes have been made (using balloons and flour/water for glue) and now we are in the sorting-of-fabric-scraps step.
