Tin Can Critters Kids Craft

Materials:

Arnold Grummer's Let's Make Paper! Kit

Two 4" to 5" diameter cans, one open on one end, one open on both ends

Tray or cake pan

Plastic canvas: 6" x 6"

2 window screens: 6" x 6"

Sponge

Terry kitchen towel

Paper towels

Hardcover book

Large zip-lock bag

Kitchen blender

Two 8 oz cups

Wastepaper


Steps:

Stack in tray from the bottom up: rinsed open can, plastic canvas, window screen, second can with top and bottom cut out.
 

Blend a 5" x 5" piece of wastepaper with 2 cups water in blender on hi for 20 seconds. Pour blended pulp into 2 cups.
 

Don't be shy! Pour pulp from both cups into top can at the same time, quickly.
 

Remove top can. Oooh and ahhh. Move new sheet on screen to terry towel. Cover with second window screen. Blot out as much water as possible with sponge.
 

Put hardcover book in ziplock bag and seal. Use book to press wet sheet between paper towels.
 

Cover sheet with thin cloth and iron dry, or place between dry paper towels under stack of books to dry overnight.
 

Note: Lay out paper towels to dry and reuse another day for paper making. Have fun!
