Making Paper

This past week at Imagine we made paper. 
We ripped up old newspaper and soaked it in water overnight.
The screen you use to make the paper is called a "deckle".
The children scooped up the soggy newspaper and put it in the blender.
We added food coloring to the "pulp" in the the blender.
We used wisteria and azaleas to make our paper beautiful.,
and rosemary and lavender to make it smell good.
We poured the pulp onto the deckle.
We used a piece of felt to squeeze the excess liquid out of the pulp mixture.

We will  be using our handmade paper for a very special project in the future.
