Paper-Mache Treasure

Author:  GSLC

Materials needed:
shallow bowl,
small object.
Using a 9” or 12” balloon stretch the balloon around the small object. Blow the balloon up part
way and tie it. Tear the newspaper into 1” x 3” strips. If the balloon is small adjust the strips
accordingly. Mix the flour and water (1 cup flour to 1 cup water) together in the bowl. Drag the
paper strip through the glue (flour and water) mixture and place on the balloon. Overlap the strips
so that the whole balloon surface is covered. Let dry. When dry take a straight pin and pop the
balloon. Let dry for additional time. After drying the shape can be painted. Crack open to
find the treasure.
