Paper Making

On Friday, we had a paper making class at Sego Lily. The kids made some amazing art! I love it :) Mara brought some fresh herbs from her garden and it smelled like a gourmet meal was being cooked. Willow's finished work is above and Mara's are below.

The paper making adventure came from us reading about Japan for Culture Club (more to come on that Wednesday :) ) We were reading Make it Work Japan, The Hand's on Approach to History by Andrew Haslam. It has a lot of great ideas for learning about Japan by doing projects.

Mara teaching Zoe how to iron her paper....
