Making Paper

We finished our China study. It was fun and I think we both learned quite a bit which hopefully will come back this year as we take a field trip. One of the last things we did was make paper.

First, the job was to tear the paper into small pieces and put it in a bucket of water.

Then we mixed it in the blender.

Then we strained it. That was the hard part figuring out how to get rid of the water. 

We put the paper on wax paper and let it dry. That took about 2 days and included putting it in the sun. Then we had paper.
We had about 4 pieces of it and now when we want to put it in the lapbook we can't find it.

We enjoyed our China study and hopefully it prepared us for our summer activities. Now we are back to our other studies -- back in Athens and Persia.
