The Chinese invented paper made from plants and cloth about 2,000 years ago. Learners follow a similar process to make paper from recycled paper. Once dry, learners can make something special with their handmade paper like a greeting card, origami, a book, or bookmarks. Use this activity to introduce learners to the paper-making process, material science, and/or recycling. Note: adult supervision is recommended to assist learners with scissors, craft knife, and blender.
