Pre-School Paper Field Trip

Three-, four- and five-year olds visited our paper studio and created these vases.
Pre-schoolers come to our studio for two field trips each summer. On their first visit they all make their own sheets of paper. On  the second trip, they put their skills to use making something out of their own paper. This year they made vases by covering glass jars with their own paper. Each vase is beautiful, they are all different, and each was really truly made by a child. That, in my opinion, is the best kind of children's art project.

Ask any five children what is the best part of making paper and they will tell you it is blending the pulp in the blender. Ask ten children and nine will tell you it's the blender. The tenth child was abstent that day.
