Paper Mache 7th and 8th Grades

A new quarter began and the 7th and 8th grades first did some designing and making of clay cups with handles and then we plunged into making  paper mache bowls.  I hope they are having as much fun as I am.  Another great group of students to work with!

Another action shot of bowls being assembled.  Usually safety glasses are not required for paper mache, but this particular student was taking no chances!
