Activity: Create papier mache minibeasts for the kitchen
How long: 2 hrs
What you’ll need: Newspaper, balloons, paint and flour/water or papier mache paste
Directions: Inflate your balloon, not too much the smaller the balloon the faster it will dry.
Rip your paper into strips or squares. Create a paste with 220 g flour and 200 ml water or you can use a paper mache mix or PVA glue diluted with water.
Cover the balloon with papier mache and allow to dry completely, this may take a day or two. Paint yellow with black stripes add wings as a sting for a bumble bee but run with your imagination and decorate however you wish.
