Paper Mache Globes

This year I attempted something completely out of my comfort zone - paper mache with 17 six and seven year olds.  It was messy, but fun! At one point, a student had glue in his hair and was sliding around the floor. I couldn't have done it without my parapro and two parent volunteers! 

A few days later, we painted the continents and oceans on our globes.

I think actually painting the globes was messier than the paper mache! As I was checking on the students, one said "Uh, Ms. Deal? I lost my paintbrush inside my globe." Somehow in the tiny hole, his BIG paintbrush slipped in. Accident? I think not! Then I looked at another student and she had paint in her hair, on her face, all up her arms and all over her WHITE shirt. Oh my.

  1. We always do one papier mache project each year too-one is all I have the patience for! You're right it is messy, but the kids love it! The messier the kids get, the more fun they had right? :)
