WOW!!! What a week we are having in 3rd grade. We are making paper mache masks and boy, oh boy, are they MESSY!!!! The kids are having a ball, but it is VERY time consuming. They are being great workers, but it is still taking quite a while to make them.

First, we blew up balloons. Then we mixed our paste. We used a combination of flour, water, and a little glue. We tore newspapers in strips and proceeded to paste them onto the ballons. The kids are loving this project so far. After they are dry, we will paint them. Be sure to check back with us in a few weeks to see the final results.
