Messy Mache Bowl

My 2 year old loved this project. Plenty of opportunities to get messy and indulge the senses!

Paper Mache Recipe

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup PVA glue

Whisk ingredients together. Use immediately.

  • Newspaper
  • balloon
  • tissue paper
Tear newspaper into strips. Blow up balloon. Dip strips of newspaper into glue mixture and layer over top half of balloon, the size and depth that you would like your bowl. Create a neat edge using straight edges of newspaper around the outside. Put a layer of tissue paper over to finish and then leave to dry for a day. Then paint.
