On Friday VBS2 made paper out of old newspaper. Two people, Thomas and Sabine, from the  MA48 came to show us how.

To make paper we need:

  • old newspapers
  • cold water
  • hot water

We also need some equipment:

  • a bucket
  • a stick mixer
  • a big tub
  • a frame with a screen
  • a tray
  • a wet cloth

Directions:

  1. Rip up old newspaper into strips.

2. Tear the strips into little pieces.

3. Put them in the bucket with hot water until the paper is covered.

4. Then mix it with the stick mixer until it’s clumpy and looks like a grey soup.

6. Put the frame down into the bottom of the tub and careful pull it straight up.

7. Put the frame onto the tray and take it back to your seat. Be careful not to press on it.

8. Put a cloth on top to soak up any left over water and wait a minute.

9. Take the cloth off and squeeze the water out into the tray.

10. Turn the frame upside down onto a whole newspaper and tap on one side so it comes out of the frame.

11. Then you have a grey piece of paper. You can cut out pieces of coloured paper and tap them on to decorate your paper.

Leave it to dry for two days and then you can write on it.

We had a lot of fun making our new grey paper. Why don’t you try making paper yourself.

Ana says,”Don’t forget to decorate it!”

Sophie’s tip is,”The most important thing is to remember to have fun!”

Vinayak advises, “Let a grown up do the mixing so you don’t hurt yourself.”

Maddalena commented,”My favourite part was decorating the paper.”

Jojo added,”It’s a good idea not to put your hands on the paper when it’s just out of the water.”
