To help out at the school, I volunteered to assist with “Fun Fridays,” a day where the kids get to do special projects to help them learn about the units they are currently studying.
Well, my teammate Val is the science teacher and they just started studying a unit on planets, so we scoured Pinterest and came up with the idea to make some paper mache planets using some homemade paste and balloons. Yup, we thought that would be good idea.
Well, it was fun, but it was also exhausting and created a huge mess in her classroom. I
probably won’t will never do paper mache again, but I think the kids had a good time.
Here are some pictures from our paper mache project.
By the end of the day I was pretty exhausted, and in need of being hosed off from the paste we used. I was seriously just covered with it. But, after a good nights sleep and a weekend off, I’m ready to go back tomorrow.
