We blended the torn paper with water to make pulp. Some friends said we were making paper smoothies.
We collected the pulp and squirted it onto screens. Then we used rags to press the excess water out of our new paper.
We also used an old calendar to make paper beads today.
During free exploration, we tested stamps, worked in our message center, and built structures and pathways for balls out of reusable materials. One friend was interested in making instruments with our containers and loose parts. She made an instrument for everyone in our class, and we explored her creations together at our second meeting.
