Step-by-step instructions walk kids through each step of the process - mixing the paper pulp with water, coloring it with the food coloring, and pressing it onto the silk screen.
As the paper dries, they can read further to explore new artistic ideas as well as the history and science behind paper making. Then, they can grab the six tubes of paint and transform their new sheet of homemade paper into a gallery-worthy masterpiece!
Run out of pulp? No problem. Kids will also learn about recycling as they turn old paper into pulp to make new paper!
