Repurposing Our Old Paper

As part of our repurposing studies, we were lucky to have Lauren's Mum, Claire come in to make paper with Room 8. Room 8 kids discovered last week that paper is actually made from trees, and we need to cut down trees to make paper. The clever cookies in Room 8 already knew that trees produce oxygen, and we need this to breathe, so they were quite concerned. They thought it would be a great idea to use our old paper to make new paper. We even used old junk mail and flyers.
Here are some of the photos from our paper making. Watch this space to see what we will turn our beautiful paper into.

PS. 20 Whanau points for Room 8 kids that can write the instructions for making paper in the comments.

Please leave a comment, Room 8 loves to read them. Make sure you leave your name!
