This weekend required an activity to keep small people entertained, and it ended up involving the whole family. I was the designated goop chef, and I made up this batch of papier mache glue, using only the ingredients you see here – Flour, sugar, water (and heat). I found the reciepe here.
We blew up small balloons for the kids, propped them some jars and glasses, and got dipping with our ripped up newspaper. Luke and Michaela are collaborating on a chirpy bird. Rory and Amelia are making frogs. Best of all, I think this project will provide amusement for days to come.
We stored the goop in the fridge overnight, and this morning it was the consistency of good old Clag. It was great to be able to whip it up in our own kitchen for free, and we now have enough goop for a papier mache house.
What did you get up to this weekend?
