Day 330: Construction Paper Clay

Before you throw away all those scrap pieces of construction paper, save them and make something new!

You’ll need: 2c of scrap construction paper (sorted by color), 4 1/2c water, 1/2c flour

Directions: Tear the construction paper into small pieces and put them in a blender with 4c water. Blend until mushy (about 20-30 seconds). Pour the mixture through a cullender and squeeze the excess water out of the pulp.

Then, in a separate bowl, put the flour and remaining 1/2c of water together and mix until well blended. Slowly add the flour/water mixture to the paper pulp; knead until a dough is formed.

Tip: A little glitter makes the clay extra special.
